Our student staff do amazing things within their communities. If you're looking for a way to get involved, meet people, and have a positive, lasting impact on your campus, we encourage you to join our Residence Life team! We are hiring for new Resident Advisors (RAs) as well as looking for current RAs to apply for Community Advisors (CAs), returning RAs, and new positions in the student village (student rental properties).
Our student staff are a vital part of making the Wittenberg community a vibrant, warm, welcoming space. Through the RA/CA experience, students learn tools transferable to and valuable within any professional field. Our student staff are challenged to manage a full schedule, prioritize, and excel in all they do. They practice communication, mediation, and facilitation skills that make them more effective leaders, students, and friends. A tight-knit group, our staff operates as a team in the truest sense of the word, learning how to handle conflicts professionally while supporting each other in all their endeavors.
The RA & CA roles are meant to stretch and grow you in a variety of ways, helping us build effective, healthy communities as well as preparing you for a lifetime of involvement and leadership. It is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences you will ever have in college. We hope that you will consider joining our family!
