RA Advisory Board to act as liaison for students

In an effort to increase awareness and accountability regarding students’ concerns, a new Residential Assistant Advisory Board will meet with Residential Education staff members, including deans, assistant and associate directors, over the next several weeks. The board will function as a liaison to various student groups and work to educate and solicit opinions from RAs on new ResEd initiatives.
