CUBO RA AWARDS 2020
Role of the Residence Assistant
Residence Assistants (RAs) carry out essential work in developing a living and learning community. Sometimes known by other job titles, essentially they are students who work or volunteer in student accommodation, helping their fellow students to adapt to and thrive in university life. The CUBO RA Awards recognise and reward their hard work. Supporting the CUBO strategic theme of rewarding innovation and championing best practice, we are delighted to open applications for the 3rd Annual CUBO RA Awards for 2020.
