The RA is a student who has been selected and trained to assist your student with the adjustment to life at RIO. All residence halls have at least one RA on each floor living amongst the residents. The RA is trained in areas such as mediation, dealing with roommate conflicts, confrontation and RIO policies and procedures. They are charged with the important tasks of building community on their floors and enforcing RIO policies.
There is an RA on-duty each day the college is open to respond to various situations. They are considered staff and are expected to uphold the policies, mission and vision of Rio Grande. The RA reports to the Student Life Coordinator.
