Developing a sense of personal and communal responsibility and respecting the rights of others is also an important part of this program.

RAs are Butler students who are available to help you while you are living in the residence hall. One RA lives on each unit. They plan programs and activities, assist in developing a respectful community, serve as a resource for your concerns, and enforce hall policies.

Apartment Community Assistants (ACAs) are upper division student leaders who live in the Apartment Complexes (Apartment Village, Butler Terrace, South Campus Apartments, and University Terrace) and assist residents. ACAs are responsible for supporting student learning in the apartments, enforcing policy, and providing general support for students living in the apartments.

Faculty In Residence (FIR) are full-time Butler faculty members who live on campus within one of the Residential areas; including Residential College, Irvington House, Ross Hall and Fairview House. These faculty are individuals who are committed to students and the learning experience that takes place outside of the classroom. They plan and implement educational and social initiatives within the halls. They also provide academic support and opportunities within and outside of the Residential areas. Three FIRs work with specific Living Learning Communities, such as Honors and Alternative Medicine.
