Community Assistants | St. Lawrence University Residence Life

Community Assistants

General Information

The Community Assistants (CAs) at St. Lawrence University are employed as para-professionals working to cultivate a strong community bond and while assisting with the educational, cultural and social development of each resident.  They participate in training activities to better prepare them for leading a community and are typically very dedicated, highly involved, and caring community members.  For a look at some of the activities and interests of the current CAs, check out our student profile page.

Overall, there are 57 CAs and 2 Townhouse Managers for the Office of Residence Life.  These students work as a large staff of CAs throughout the year, but each CA belongs to a smaller team.  These teams are directly supervised by a Residential Coordinator that works closely with a small group of residential buildings.
