About Us

The purpose of Residence Housing Association (RHA) is to recognize and unify our diverse identities within undergraduate housing in order to form a borderless community. We advocate for the residents of undergraduate housing to create a welcoming environment. Lastly, we develop programs that promote growth, leadership, and excellence. Through our actions we uphold Grand Valley State University's values, namely as Integrity, Inclusion, Learning, and Respect.

Our mission is to improve the community through empowering students with collaborative experiences, leadership development, recognition, and service while advocating for on-campus residents. We are a respected organization for the programs we provide, the leadership development of our members, our desire to advocate for students, and our influence in creating a unified community. We work collaboratively to provide positive residential experiences for students and recognize exceptional leadership and community within on-campus housing.
