RESIDENT ADVISOR POSITION: Academic Year 2023-2024

Housing and Residence Life Staff 


What is a Resident Advisor?

Resident Advisors (RAs) are CSUF student leaders who live on-campus while serving in the role. Resident Advisors are responsible for ensuring Housing and Residential Engagement’s community development and relationship building by means of student development, training and development, and administrative/operational tasks. Resident Advisors develop individual relationships with each resident (typically 40-50) focused on learning about them, connecting them to resources, and helping them grow. In addition to resident relationships, a core responsibility of this position will be to serve in the student staff on-call duty rotation to ensure the safety and security of the HRE community.


Time Commitment

During the weeks when classes are in session, RAs are expected to maintain a schedule of an average of twenty (20) hours a week. This time shall be distributed between a combination of scheduled and unscheduled time. A reasonable schedule would include a combination of patterns of time including scheduled commitments (i.e. meetings, advising students, etc.) and unscheduled commitments (being available to residents at varying intervals during the day and night). RAs accept the foregoing as a reasonable attempt to define a position that is not easily translated into an hourly basis or reduced to specific duties without gross oversimplification of the nature of the primary position. RAs further recognize the full opportunity to discuss serious deviations from the above with the Community Coordinator and/or the Associate Director, Housing and Residential Engagement.

RAs will attend weekly RA meetings every Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. during the academic year.

Active working hours during duty shifts are an estimated 2-4 hours per duty shift. This can include rounds, performing lockouts and other duties, and administrative responsibilities.

The RA is expected to participate in a fall and winter training prior to the beginning of both the fall and spring semesters. Training will begin at the end of July/early August for Fall and early January for Spring, RAs will not be allowed to miss training. During this training, RAs will learn foundational skills to be successful in the RA position alongside working on floor preparation. The detailed training schedule will be determined prior to each period. Housing accommodations and limited food service will be provided during training.


Position Qualifications

Qualified applicants for the Resident Advisor position will:

  1. Be a current CSUF student in good standing with a minimum of 12 units earned and cumulative GPA of 2.5 by the end of the Fall semester before applying.
  2. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or greater, and a semester GPA of 2.25 or greater.
  3. Maintain a full-time course load of 12-16 units per semester specific to enrollment at CSUF. Graduate Students must maintain a course load of 6-9 units per semester specific to enrollment at CSUF.
  4. Be in good judicial standing with the University as well as Housing and Residential Engagement and maintain this throughout their appointment.
  5. An understanding of and willing to work in an inclusive environment with a diverse student population.
  6. An understanding or willingness to learn about residential student needs while they live on-campus.
  7. Ability to effectively communicate and build/ maintain individual and group relationships.
  8. Ability to analyze complex situations accurately and adopt effective course of action.
  9. Ability to establish and maintain cooperative working relationships with a variety of individuals.
  10. Possess excellent verbal and written communication skills as well as the ability to acquire knowledge of HRE policies and procedures.
  11. Ability to work and collaborate with others in a team-oriented environment.

Remuneration

Remuneration for Resident Advisors consists of a meal plan with $200 per semester in declining balance and a single bed space in Student Housing (estimated to be a value of $9000 per semester).

Resident Advisors also receive priority registration for their classes while serving in the role in order to plan around RA required commitments.

As a result of receiving this remuneration, the RA position requires you to live on-campus and maintain a presence in the housing community on most days. Requests to be off-campus for multiple days in a row requires approval from your supervisor.
