The primary duty of the Student Life Advisor (SLA) is to create and maintain a positive living/learning environment for the students in their care. Each SLA works independently with his/her group of students (approximately 30-40 students) and collectively with the other staff to ensure that student care, development, and safety needs are met.
In addition to programming responsibilities, SLAs who enjoy being involved in many aspects of campus life can elect to sponsor clubs and student organizations or to serve on various campus networks. SLAs can also plan or chaperone social or educational off-campus trips.
