The mission of HRC’s residential curriculum is to foster personal development, community engagement, and cultural exploration for UA’s residential community.
The Residence Hall Association (RHA) strives to develop residents into leaders who are community advocates and foster a campus culture of inclusivity, mutual respect, and social engagement. RHA provides residents with social, service, and personal development opportunities and advocates on behalf of residents of The University of Alabama’s residential communities.
RHA will meet Wednesday nights at 6:30 in Lloyd 355.
If you want an opportunity to get involved on campus and make your voice heard, email RHA at email@example.com .
