DISCUSSION QUESTIONS
1. One participant referred to the existing department policy that expects the
RA position to be prioritized above all else, second only to academics. In general,
how does this expectation align with students' level of engagement compared to
the profession's dedication to providing a full college experience? What are
implications for developing a sense of belonging? What would an adjusted
expectation look like that supports both the needs of working-class RAs and
the purpose of the RA role?
2. Consider adjusting RA job requirements to better support working-class students'
need for income. What meaningful benefits can be added to the existing stipend
and room and board? How can RA jobs and work/study positions be deliberately
paired to supplement each other? For example, can we help RAs secure a
work/study job within a student life functional area that would simultaneously
support the " be visible " goal of the RA role?
3. Examine your staffing practices: Do you require or expect staff to pay their own
way or incur some sort of expense? Is there an expectation to pay up front and then
request reimbursement afterward? What changes can help alleviate that situation
while still staying within the department budget?
4. As professionals, leaders, and allies, are we allowing students to carry the burden
of speaking up " about class equity even as they were experiencing classism " ?
As we continue to examine our own privileges, how can we include this topic in our
own professional development, then in our RA training, and subsequently in the
residential curriculum? What resources can you find to help support learning more?
