CAs have extremely important jobs and are critical to the DOR mission. Each house, building, and/or area has one live-in CA who provides leadership to the development of programs and activities, serves as a resource to residents, and enforces policies and procedures to ensure the safety of residents.

CAs come from diverse backgrounds with a wide variety of skills and talents. However, there are some qualities that we look for in CAs we work with:

  • Ability to problem solve
  • Strong commitment to academics
  • Flexibility and adaptability
  • Willingness to learn from, with. and about others
  • Commitment to create and participate in an inclusive community

We will be hosting CA open houses this year for you to check out and ask any questions you might have:

  • Tuesday, October 29 at 7pm in the Geoffroy Activity Room
  • Wednesday, December 4 at 7pm in Martin 2121

NOTE: The open houses or webinar are optional and are NOT required to be viable as a CA candidate.  We had some misprints on our posters.
