CMU Resident Hall Assistants Announced
Serve to guide students and enrich their experiences
As the fall semester approaches at Central Methodist University, residence hall assistants are among the earliest students to arrive on the Fayette campus.
Although each residence hall has a director, each floor is also staffed with a residence assistant (RA). The role of the assistants includes support of CMU's academic mission, and enrichment and cultivation of opportunities for personal growth outside of the classroom for the students in their residence halls.
The RAs also work closely with the Residential Life Department and the Office of Student Development to provide support and customer service, plus crisis intervention and enforcement of campus policies when needed. They also serve as ambassadors for the University, according to Salum Stutzer, assistant dean of student development.
