Each year, DCL hires nine Head Community Advisors to serve as leaders within the CA Program and supports to the Area Coordinators for each of our residential areas. Head CAs are students who have served in the CA role for at least one year and who have performed exceptionally well, thus earning them a senior leadership position within the program. Current Community Advisors who wish to apply for the HCA position should complete a returning CA application for 2017-2018 and indicate their interest in the HCA role; applications for priority returners (students who will not be on campus in Spring 2017) must be complete by November 28, 2016 at 5 p.m. and applications for standard returner applicants must be complete by January 20, 2017 at 5 p.m.
The Community Advisor is the main paraprofessional staff position within DCL; Community Advisors work with our on-campus student population in all of our residence halls and wear many "hats": community builder, residential educator and programmer, community standards educator, peer advisor, and team player within DCL. Students who wish to become Community Advisors for the 2017-2018 academic year should complete the new CA application for 2017-2018 and submit all required materials by January 30, 2017 at 5 p.m.
