Leadership skills begin at home, and the collegiate experience of the Columbia residence halls helps to develop these skills further. The Residence Hall Leadership Organization (RHLO) is the campus-wide group that aims to promote community among our residential population, advocate for the needs of residents, and liaise with university administrators who directly impact the residential experience.
Furthermore, RHLO encompasses a unique consortium of Hall Councils, which individually unite students in a particular residence hall by planning engaging events, fostering a sense of community, and most of all, serving as advocates, representatives, and leaders. Collectively, RHLO encourages among its Hall Councils collaboration on planning and ideas between residence hall communities and engagement of students in events on a campus-wide scale.
RHLO and Hall Council members manage a budget, plan events, and foster a sense of community in their residence halls and across campus. Past RHLO members have used the experiences they’ve gained to serve as Resident Advisers, take on leadership roles in clubs and student organizations, and secure internships.
To contact RHLO, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information about the structure and governance of RHLO, please refer to the RHLO Constitution and Bylaws.
