Develop leadership skills, mentor students, and have fun!
Resident Assistants (RAs) have the opportunity to directly impact the growth and development of their peers by providing leadership and acting as role models for their floor.
Our RAs Build CHARACTER!
C.H.A.R.A.C.T.E.R. is the acronym for the Urbana University Residence Hall Programming Model. The letters in our acronym represent the desired topic areas for residence hall programs. Those areas are as follows:
- C: Culture/Diversity;
- H: Health;
- A: Academic/Professional;
- R: Recreation;
- A: Art/Music;
- C: Community Service;
- T: Team Building;
- E: Engagement;
- R: Religious/Spiritual.
This programming tool is intended to promote intellectual, spiritual, social, cultural and physical development. Programs should “challenge and support” students to achieve optimal growth and to appreciate varying perspectives.
