SUMMER CONFERENCE ASSISTANTS

The SCA works under the supervision of the Conference and the Associate Director of Residence Life for Facilities. In addition, the SCA will work with the liaison of each group's camp contact person.
SUMMER RESIDENT ASSISTANT
The Summer Resident Assistant (Summer RA) is responsible for assisting in the operation of the residence hall's activities, student conduct, and general administration under a philosophy of enhancing student growth and development.
Responsibilities in the paid leadership position of RA are numerous, and the RA is the focal point for the day-to-day operation of his/her floor. The RA is at one time: student, community developer, referral agent, business manager, peer, friend, and disciplinarian. Simply stated, the RA position is the most comprehensive student leadership position attainable at Arkansas State University. This diversity of roles and responsibilities is challenging and calls on the RA to develop organizational and interpersonal skills. The position of RA provides an opportunity to maximize self-development, maturity, and confidence during the college years.
Desk Assistants are often the first contact for students and guests entering the resident hall, and it is important that the desk staff sets a welcoming environment for students and guests. Desk assistants will also aid the Residence Hall Director as needed.
