RHA and RHEC
Residence Housing Association & Residence Housing Executive Council
What is RHA?
The Residence Housing Association is a leadership group connecting the campus residential community. RHA’s mission is to be attentive and responsive to the needs and concerns of the residents, to foster a sense of community and to encourage a balanced living-learning environment. The group is comprised of the following members from each residence hall and apartment community:
- Wellness Chair
- Peer Conduct Board Representative
- Birthday Chair
Participating in RHA is a fun yet challenging opportunity for students to grow their leadership skills while engaging in community dialog, exercising their creativity and meeting new people.
To get involved, download and complete a Residence Life Leadership Application and either turn your completed application in to the Residence Life Office in Mahaffey Hall or email it to email@example.com. The deadline for applications has passed, but individual applications will still be considered for open positions.
Residence Housing Executive Council (RHEC)
Each President serves on the Executive Council. This group of individuals meets weekly and works with the Residence Life Assistant for Leadership Development. RHEC members organize events for their hall or apartment area and the campus as a whole. RHEC coordinates with their RA’s and other chairs to plan events, develop the community and to give voice to resident’s concerns.
Some examples of Traditional RHEC programs are:
- McMinnville Community Trick-Or-Treat on campus
- Holiday dances
- Co-sponsors of the Parent and Alumni Association Easter Egg Hunt
- Thanksgiving food drive
- Finals Week study breaks
The Associated Students of Linfield College (ASLC), governed by the students provides social, cultural, athletic and recreational activities as well as opportunities for leadership and development. Senators attend Senate meetings, representing their residential constituents. They are also responsible for communicating news back to their constituent communities.
These members encourage and promote health and wellness issues in their communities throughout the year. Working with the College Wellness Coordinator, this group of leaders focuses on providing useful information and programming for each Residence Hall or apartment community.
These members are in charge of recognition within their communities. They honor acheivements by the residents in their hall and coordinate birthday celebrations within their hall.
Peer Conduct Board
The Peer Conduct Board is a unique program, which provides the benefit of community accountability. Conduct Board meets weekly to review cases and is an entirely peer-guided process that is advised by the Area Director for Community Standards.
