CA and LCA Position Description

Lead community advisor sign on door.

Lead Community Advisors and Community Advisors  

The community advisor (CA) serves as a mentor and resource to all residents within their area/building. They report to the residence director (RD) of the building/area and contribute to the overall community development in the residence halls. There are two CAs on each floor in Seton and O'Shea halls located in the same location on each floor. There is one CA on each floor in Clet, Lynch and O'Donoughue halls and one per building in Varsity Village and the apartments. CAs can assist residents with a number of things including assisting residents who are locked out, have university questions, offering social and academic programs for the floor, ensuring university policies are enforced and more!

The lead community advisors (LCAs) have all the same responsibilities as a community advisor. However, LCAs provide additional paraprofessional support to the RD in any areas that may need additional assistance (i.e. large programming or staff support in the role of a "team captain").  

Being a CA or LCA is a great leadership opportunity on campus and one that provides skill for life after college and everyday leadership.  Our CAs and LCAs are a great asset to our campus community and making living on campus a "once in a lifetime experience".

There is always a residence life staff member on-call 24/7. If you cannot get in touch with your CA and need assistance, you may contact the Office of Campus Safety at 716.286.8111.
