Community Assistant (CA)
CAs play an important leadership role in our campus living communities
The Campus Living Community Assistant (referred to as a Community Assistant or CA) is an academic-year live-in student leadership position primarily focused on helping students enjoy a positive campus living experience that reflects our departmental mission and foundational value areas. The CA is an upper-division student who plays a critical role in creating an inclusive environment where students develop independence while learning to live cooperatively with others. The CA does this through interacting with residents, planning events and activities, listening and providing resources to residents with concerns, coaching positive roommate relationships, educating residents on community living expectations and policies, responding to emergency and crisis situations, and helping to ensure safe and well-maintained facilities and services that meet student needs.
Reporting to a full-time live-in Campus Living Community (CLC) Coordinator and potentially a CLC Graduate Assistant, the CA is responsible for connecting with approximately 35-50 residents in a designated floor or area of a campus living community. The CA role is an average 20-hour/week position.
If you have additional questions about the CA position or the selection process talk to your Campus Living staff – CLCs, Graduate Assistants, and current RA/CAs.
