There are many activities in the residence halls which aid in the development of leadership skills and provide opportunities for learning and socialization. The hall staff, Hall Council and Inter-Hall Council members work with residents to build community on the floor and within the hall. A wide variety of social, educational, recreational, multi-cultural and current social issue programs are provided for students to enjoy. Highlights of some of our programs include:
Residence Life Staff
Assistant Director: There are two Assistant Directors who oversee administrative duties, advise student organizations, and supervise the Graduate Assistant (GA) and Community Assistants (CA) within their assigned hall(s). The Assistant Directors are also responsible for maintaining the discipline system of the residence halls. They also assume responsibility for departmental activities.
Residence Life Coordinators: We have one full-time residence life coordinator (RLC) who reside on campus. They oversee one building and are responsible for supervision of a Graduate Asisstant (GA) and Community Assistants (CA) in their assigned building. They help resolve issues within the residence hall community and serve as a resource to students.The RLC serves as a hearing officer for the Office of Judicial and Mediation Services.
Graduate Assistant: There is one Graduate Assistant (GA) in each residence hall or cluster of halls. Graduate Assistants are graduate students who share many of the same responsibilities as community assistants; however, they also have administrative duties, oversee student organizations, supervise community assistants and hall residents, and maintain the discipline system within the hall. GAs also provide campus on-call responsibilities when the office is closed and on weekends.
Community Assistants: Community assistants (CA) live on each wing of the residence halls. They have been trained to provide students with information about Clarion University, help students resolve personal issues, plan programs and activities for the residents, and ensure the safety and security of the building.
