Resident Associates (RAs) are crucial to the Rice University college system, assisting magisters in supporting the intellectual, social, and cultural activities within the college. Living among the students, Resident Associates are in a unique position to be a positive community facilitator, role model, and to provide guidance and leadership to college members. Resident Associates, therefore, must be a visible participant in college life, accessible to students, and willing to stand in for the magisters, when appropriate.
