Apply to join the Residence Life Staff at Waldorf College


The Residence Life Program at Waldorf College is a vital component of the educational program and academic support services of the college. Our mission is to provide a living-learning environment for all resident students, in accordance with the mission of the college. The goals of the residence life program include: providing individual and/or group educational and development opportunities, offering well-maintained facilities, and offering responsive, efficient, and effective management of services and resources.

The Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who serve as members of the Residence Life staff and are directly supervised by an Area Coordinator (AC) and the Director of Residence Life. RAs interact frequently and communicate often with resident students; therefore, they have an outstanding opportunity to contribute to the residents’ development and education through community building. They are also responsible for implementing programs and enforcing policies through which Residence Life goals can be realized. The RAs are expected to be sincerely interested in the welfare of students regardless of their race, sex, gender, disabling condition, political affiliation, veteran status, religion, ancestry, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, or marital status. RAs are expected to encourage all residents to be constructively supportive by actual involvement in the overall Residence Life Program.
