Why should I work with Resident Advisors?

Resident AdvisorA resident advisor (RA) is someone who cares for the constant improvement of life for those around them. Whether it be a student looking for a tutor, a resident trying to deal with depression, or a friend who has nowhere else to turn for help, resident advisors attempt to raise people up and improve their quality of living. However, not only are they aids for those seeking their assistance, they are role models, counselors, and teachers. Resident advisors leave a lasting impact on all those who pass through the halls—whether that impact be good or bad is dependent upon the RA.

We encourage you to help resident advisors have all the resources that they need to advise and support pregnant, parenting, and post-abortive students.

What can I do?

  1. Create and distribute Resident Advisor Kits.
  2. Provide pregnant and parenting students’ rights information to resident advisors.
  3. Share your group’s Pregnant and Parenting Guide with your RA.
  4. Contact the Director of Residence Life. Set up a meeting to discuss current RA trainings to learn more about how your resident advisors are prepared for these situations.
  5. Distribute a list featuring your groups’ information and student resources to resident advisors.
