Resident Assistant (RAs) 

Resident Assistants serve as the primarily resource for the 1200 students who reside on campus at both UIW and Madeleine Hall (IWHS/STA Residence Life).  RAs develop strong, lasting relationships with their students and help them connect with each other and the UIW campus.  RAs perform nightly rounds when they are on call, work in one of our three offices, and work in their halls during designated times.  RAs also are responsible for bringing their residents to different events around campus and serve as a mediator to assist in the resolution of roommate conflicts.  RAs are mandated reported and serve as CSAs.

Office Assistant (OAs)

Office Assistants work at Madeleine Hall to welcome students when they return from class, assist with any needs they might have, and represent the department until staff report for duty.  Office assistants support the administrative staff through a variety of clerical and creative duties such as filing and managing files, developing advertisements, checking on students, and answering a variety of questions that come through the office.
