Resident Assistants (RAs)
Residence life is an opportunity for students, staff and faculty to explore what it means to be a part of a community united in Christ and called to care for each other in cooperative ways. Resident assistants aid residents in creating a sense of community within living areas through the programs they offer; they also assist students in developing a sense of responsibility for their actions and for their contributions to the community. RAs serve as role models and assist in the administration of the residence halls to which they are assigned.
Associated Students of Whitworth University (ASWU)
All undergrad students at Whitworth are an important part of the organization called the Associated Students of Whitworth University (ASWU). Elected officers, senators and hall reps, program coordinators, club officers and student media are all dedicated to serving the social, spiritual, educational and recreational needs of the student body. The student government is the voice of the student body. There are opportunities for leadership as residence-hall officers, club officers, activity and media coordinators, committee members, and executive officers. Everyone is needed!
Campus Ministry Coordinators (CMCs)
Whitworth's community life is built upon relationships centered on Jesus Christ. Our campus ministry coordinators work in partnership with the campus ministry staff and serve on the leadership teams within their residence halls. Their job is to create a vision for how to implement a holistic ministry approach within each hall. This could include coordinating small groups for students to participate, designing weekly worship, setting up weekly prayer gatherings, creating thoughtful programs in the halls for students who are grappling with questions of faith, or initiating relationships with students on the floor who may be feeling isolated. Campus ministry coordinators recruit other student volunteers to come and serve with them during the year in the hopes that more students on campus will be able to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ.
