Our Residential Leader Program

Our volunteer Residential Leaders (RLs) play an incredibly important role in our communities. A team of Residential Leaders are dispersed within each residence and at each campus to provide support and assistance, event management and mentoring to residents throughout their time on campus. Our leaders are provided with comprehensive training prior to and during their time as leaders including topics such as respectful relationships, bystander intervention, mental health and leadership. Students who undertake the position of RL are provided with hands-on leadership experience, team building and networking opportunities, and ongoing support, equipping them with knowledge, skills and expertise of immense value to future employers.
