That, upon recommendation of the President of the University of Wisconsin System, the Board of Regents approves the following, UW System Policy on the Role of Resident Assistants in Residence Halls:

Resident Assistants (RAs) are expected to work with student residents to create an open, inclusive, and supportive residential community.  At the same time, because RAs are students themselves, they are encouraged to participate in campus activities and organizations.  As such, RAs may participate in, organize, and lead any meetings or other activities, within their rooms, floors or residence halls, or anywhere else on campus, to the same extent as other students.  However, they may not use their positions to pressure, coerce, or inappropriately influence student residents to attend or participate.
