Involvement and Leadership Opportunities

Galileo Resident Assistant (RA) 

Resident Assistants (RA) are sophomore, junior or senior status students. The role of the RA is very complex. Duties focus around being a student, role model, counselor, teacher and administrator. RAs work with the Hall Director to plan programs for the building and their individual areas.They also enforce policy and communicate important information to residents. RAs are a vital part of our residence halls.

Galileo Academic Peer Advocate (APA)

These students are upperclassmen mentors that live in the halls with the learning community members. They collaborate with learning community faculty and staff and help integrate programming, study sessions, along with ongoing student support.

Galileo Leadership Board

The Galileo Leadership Board is comprised of students in the community who want to take a leadership role in the planning and development of Galileo programming throughout the school year. Additionally, these students may help in recruiting future Galileo participants. These students collaborate with the learning community faculty and staff to coordinate activities and programming.
