Resident Advisors are responsible for the Residence Life program in their Residence Hall or Suburb Area, under the immediate supervision of the Area Director.
The College considers Residence Life a vital facet of each student's education at Linfield and places a great deal of trust in the work of the RA. Therefore, a thorough selection and training process is in place and high standards for job performance are expected. The following are a list of standards that all Residence Life staff members are held responsible for:
Resident Advisors receive a double room as a single free of cost and a $1,000 stipend. Suburb RAs receive a full apartment credit. RAs receive valuable training in leadership, conflict resolution, people skills and crisis management. These skills are looked highly upon by graduate schools and employers.
