Leadership Development

RHA recognizes the importance of equipping residence hall leaders at Michigan State University with opportunities and resources to best serve our campus community.

Conference Overview

Annually, we select on-campus students to attend The Great Lakes Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (GLACURH) conference comprised of schools from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Canada, and Wisconsin. We also bring a delegation to the National Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH) comprised of schools from all over the country and representation from Canada. This year, RHA will attend The National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) where we will select programming and keynote speakers in collaboration with the University Activities Board on campus to align with our annual initiatives to serve as advocates for residents.

Attendance to conferences and other Resident Life programming connects on-campus residents a local and national level. In conversation and participation with individuals living in different parts of the country and state, we develop lasting friendships and ideas to bring back to campus.
