What’s the difference between a Resident Leader and a Resident Advocate?
The primary function of a Resident Leader (RL) is to live on campus and provide an enjoyable and safe environment to all residents, while acting as student leaders and role models. RL’s are accountable for the day-to-day management of residential floors and ensuring the security of the ICMS building and its contents. Additionally, RL’s are expected to be available during peak periods, campus events and activities (including out of business hours and on weekends).
On the other hand, the role of a Resident Advocate is dedicated in the development of the “Mind, Body and Soul” program – an initiative to improve the overall wellbeing of underage students. RA’s are expected to provide assistance and support to the RL’s in conducting campus activities, as well as cover on-call shifts when required. This voluntary position is meant to provide experience and knowledge in preparation for taking on the RL role.
