The Resident Assistant (RA) position is among the most respected student employee opportunities on the UWGB campus. Being an RA is more than a job for most, it is a self-development opportunity. Residence Life strives to build leaders, not just hire student employees. If your student is ready for a great experience, send them our way!
RAs work 15 hours a week during the academic year and up to 40 hours a week during pre-semester training. For the 2019-20 school year, RAs will receive a room and board plan consisting of waived housing costs (ranging from $4100 – $5200 per academic year) and a meal plan (100 meals & $650 in dining points each semester). They receive a small stipend following each semester and for August training. RAs also receive training, support and mentoring by professional staff unparalleled in the student employment arena.
Successful RA candidates will have a minimum of 2 semesters living on a campus (which includes Spring 2019), a grade point average of 2.4 or better, a passion to learn about themselves and others, and a commitment to serve students. More information, including applications and a job description can be found at http://www.uwgb.edu/housing/employment/student.asp. For initial consideration, applications should submitted by February 4th.
Our RA selection process begins in early February, but we accept applications all year long. This allows Residence Life to select the brightest and most passionate students for these important leadership positions. The benefits of being a RA truly compliment the academic experience and give students transferrable skills that are applicable to their new careers after graduation.
