Resident Assistant Programs

Resident Assistants in the halls program in alignment with the divisional pillars of Belonging, Identity, Leadership, Social Concern, Spirituality, and Well-Being. These programs, while educational in nature, ultimately facilitate community involvement and social development for residents. Your RA is an excellent person to ask about upcoming programs and would be interested to hear if you have program ideas for the future. The Hall Director of each hall oversees the RA staff and another great person with whom to discuss community programs.

Resident Student Association Programs

The Resident Student Association (RSA) is a campus-wide programming and advocacy group for all residential students.  RSA is charged with designing and implementing social and educational programs for residential students. These programs are created by students, for students. If you are interested in learning about the event planning process or have ideas you think can improve your hall community, reach out to your Hall Director to discuss involvement in your RSA. Be on the look out for fliers and emails regarding upcoming RSA events in your community.

Peer Review Board

The Peer Review Board (PRB) is a judicial board comprised of undergraduate students who hear low-level behavioral misconduct cases on behalf of the Office of Residence Life and the Dean of Students Office. The Board is led by advisors in the Office of Residence Life, but students make all of the final decisions. The PRB is a great way to ensure that student voices remain at the core of Xavier's accountability process. This opportunity is available to students from all majors and backgrounds. 

If you are interested in joining the PRB, please reach out to Matt Zalman (
