RAs may seek outside employment opportunities, either on or off campus, only after getting approval from their graduate hall director or area coordinator. Outside employment will be limited to no more than 15 hours per week.
RAs may run for a high-ranking student government positions (with the exception of student body president, student body vice-president, and Mr. and Miss North Carolina Central University) or pledge Greek organizations during their initial semester of employment, but they must be remember that the RA position is viewed as their first responsibility after academics. RA employment at NCCU is “employment at will.” This means that RAs can resign from their position at any time for any reason and that NCCU may also terminate employment at any time for any reason.
In the cases of a campus emergency, RAs may be asked to stay on campus to maintain a presence in their assigned building and to help communicate important emergency information to their residents. The executive director of Residential Life or a designee will make the determination as to whether RA staff should vacate campus during a campus emergency. When unexpected emergency campus situations occur, including inclement and hazardous weather conditions, RAs should comply with all instructions given by their supervisor and University officials. Given the nature of the RA position, on occasion, additional responsibilities not explicitly outlined may be asked of RAs. As these situations occur, resident assistants may be asked to assist with other duties as deemed necessary by the Department of Residential Life.
