FACULTY/STAFF > DEPARTMENTS & OFFICES > STUDENT LIFE > RESIDENCE LIFE > COMMUNITY ADVISOR (CA) STAFF
Community Advisor (CA) Staff

At Robert Morris University we understand that a student’s living environment has a significant impact on learning and personal development. Our Residence Life program is focused on supporting residents in their academic programs as well as pro-actively working to contribute to their personal growth and development. Residence Life staff members are educators and advisors working to promote a living-learning community. 

Community Advisor’s (CA’s) are an integral part in helping support the Office of Residence Life and its living-learning environments. A CA has many responsibilities including building community in the residence halls through programming, being a familiar first resource to students, enforcing safety and policy regulations as well as balancing his/her own schedule and priorities. Most of all a CA must be an example of a successful Robert Morris student leader.

Becoming a member of the CA staff in the Office of Residence Life is an outstanding leadership experience!
