Residential Education

Residential Education is a valued part of Housing and Residence Life and is overseen by the Associate Director for Residential Education. The primary goal is to provide students with opportunities to explore learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. We provide an educational program known as Academic Retention and Student Success (ARASS).

Academic Retention and Student Success

Academic Retention and Student Success is a residential educational program established to foster student learning outcomes, retention, and engagement. The program provides students with resources to achieve academic success while living on campus.

Peer Academic Leader Program

The Peer Academic Leader program is designed to help new and returning students learn more about North Carolina A&T, succeed academically, gain leadership skills, and meet new friends. The peer academic leader program provides continuous retention efforts for the university, and plans and designs various programs that primarily target the academic needs of students in the Residential Learning Communities.

Residential Learning Community Program

The Residential Learning Community Program at North Carolina A&T recognizes that college students learn both in and out of the classroom. Since 2010, Housing and Residence Life has collaborated with our academic and student affairs partners to complement the classroom experience inside the residence halls. Through the Residential Learning Communities, we offer students an opportunity to live and learn together in an integrated academic residential environment. This dynamic residential experience has offered specialized programming, interactions with N.C. A&T faculty and staff, and a supportive community that focuses on student success. We offer eight different living-learning communities on campus.

The Theme Community Program provides students with an opportunity to take an active role in their residential and educational experience at North Carolina A&T by engaging in a community of individuals with common educational or co-curricular interests. Theme Communities continue to be an integral part of Housing and Residence Life’s mission to promote student learning through programming and engagement. The Theme Community Program promotes a direct link between residential, academic and co-curricular life for students at North Carolina A&T.
