As a key site of interaction for students and faculty, residential colleges allow students to build relationships with adult members of the Rice community including associates, college coordinators, magisters and resident associates. As individuals that students tend to interact with on a daily basis, RAs hold arguably the most crucial role on the administrative team. Their role, Rice University Office of the Dean of Undergraduates, is to serve as both “positive community facilitator[s]” and “role models” while providing “guidance and leadership to college members.”
