Currently at Drury University there are three residents halls. Each hall is overseen and managed by one hall director and 5-6 resident assistants (RA). The RA's in each hall are directly responsible to the hall director in their building. The hall director is available to assist the RA's with planning hall activities as well as mediating in residential situations. RESPONSIBILITIES OF A RESIDENT ASSISTANT
A resident assistant serves as a liaison between the staff, faculty, students, the residents and their roommates and the residents and the hall director. The RA is a resource person for supplies, work orders and occasional referrals for students who may be experiencing difficulties or problems at school.
The RA is available 24 hours a day to assist residents in a wide variety of situations. RA's strive to create a community within their hall as well as an environment that promotes integrity, a cooperative spirit, respect for others and allows the freedom of academic pursuits. RA's provide a minimum of 2 activities per month for the residents on their floor as well as one "All Hall" activity per month.
RA's, in accordance with the universities policies, are required to respond to all incidents that occur in the residence halls and report all hall violations to the hall director. RESIDENCE HALL SECURITY
