Community Assistant Applications (Graduate Housing)

Serve Graduate Housing Communities

Community Assistants (graduate housing areas) are responsible for supporting the residential community in graduate housing, and they articulate the philosophy and policies of the Division of Student Affairs, Office of the Dean of Students, and Housing & Residence Life (HRL) to residents in their community. They also represent the needs of their residents. This adult-to-adult, non-paternal relationship centers on the Community Assistant's desire to develop a residential community that promotes personal and academic growth and eases the adjustment to University life. The Community Assistant reports to an HRL professional staff member who provides supervision, advice, and overall coordination to enhance the intellectual, social, and cultural experience of residents at the University. Community Assistant responsibilities require a 15-hour commitment per week, on average, with some evening and weekend tasks required.
