Student Leadership

As a student, becoming involved on campus is very important. Being an active member of the community allows for personal development and your voice to be heard as programming and our residential communities are being enhanced.

University Housing is proud to offer many student leadership opportunities for residents on campus. Through Area Councils, the Residence Hall Association, the Black Togetherness Organization, and the National Residence Hall Honorary, students are able to advocate for the community, build their residential environment, and connect with other students, faculty and staff members within the department. Leaders within these organizations have helped shape our residential community and create hundreds of events, programs, and experiences.

Being involved and an active member of your community allows for unparallelled connections to be formed to our campus community and other students found within the residence halls. Student leaders also develop highly marketable and transferable skills which help propel residents to future success.

Residents on campus have numerous opportunities to give back to our institutional and local communities. Area Councils, RHA, BTO and NRHH strive to develop service programs and fundraisers to give back to our community. Leaders of these organizations work to select and support a wide array of philanthropic organizations.
