One of the primary roles of RHA is to serve as an advocate for students living on campus. Advocacy takes many forms, forms, including assessment of resident needs and interests, personal meetings with university staff members, and promotion of resident interests on various university committees and boards.

Why does RHA advocate for residents?

  • Direct connection with the Office of Housing & Residence Life (HRL) administration.
  • Deep understanding of HRL policy.
  • Electoral mandate from on-campus residents.
  • Proximity to constituents (i.e., the residents).

How do we advocate?

  • Figure out what residents need, not just what they want.
  • Make sure residents know what RHA does and how to utilize RHA’s services to their optimal benefit.
  • Seek out opportunities to meet with administrators and other student leaders.

To whom do we advocate?
