Campus Residences boasts multiple standing committees which oversee a wide range of functions. In addition to these committees, staff can participate in special projects and working groups to further their professional development.
PROFESSIONAL STAFF RECRUITMENT, SELECTION, TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT
RESIDENT ASSISTANT DEVELOPMENT AND RECRUITMENT
ACADEMIC INITIATIVES AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
STUDENTS IN TRANSITION
Staff are able to partake in additional committee opportunities that are only for one semester, rather than for the entire academic term. These are optional. The RA Conference team works to host Stony Brook University’s annual Fall semester conference focused on professional development for Resident Assistants, Graduate Student Staff, and full-time staff. The members of this committee oversee program proposal submissions, catering and food, registration information, and all logistical aspects of hosting this conference. An RHD or AC is chosen to chair this conference every year and works in collaboration with an assistant director to ensure a successful event.
This RA Soirée committee plans and hosts the annual end-of-year Resident Assistant celebration event. A team comprised of volunteer RHDs, ACs, and Area Office Managers works to create a theme-driven event focused on recognizing the incredible work exhibited by the Resident Assistant staff each year. This event involves an award selection, an awards ceremony, catered dinner, and the opportunity to work with event coordination.
