MIT's fraternities, sororities and Independent Living Groups are now accepting applications for live-in resident advisors. They are due by April 30 and are available online at: http://web.mit.edu/slp/fsilgs/ra-application.shtml.
A resident advisor is expected to serve as a mentor, guide and resource for students and to serve as a liaison between the chapter and the Dean's Office. The RA is expected to know and educate FSILG students about MIT policies, applicable chapter and/or fraternity/sorority headquarters policies, and common-sense safety practices. Training is provided.
All resident advisors receive free room and board. In addition, some organizations may include a small stipend. Each resident advisor is furnished with a single room in the chapter facility.
A BA or BS and/or graduate enrollment at an accredited institution are required.
