Leadership Groups

With over 2000 students living on-campus, the interest and demand for leadership development opportunities is abundant. Currently, Housing offers two student organizations that represent the residents in areas of programming, policy development, and leadership. Those organizations are:

  • Residence Hall and Apartment Association (RHAA)
  • National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH)


RHAA (Residence Hall and Apartment Association) is a student organization that deals with the many opportunities and issues of living on campus. RHAA plans programs for residents and advises Housing Administrators on policy changes and things of interest to the residents. Some benefits to attending RHAA meetings are:Group of students

  • Voicing your opinion on housing policies
  • Keeping our housing practices environmentally sound
  • Planning programs (social and educational)
  • Increasing your civic mindedness
  • Representing UWGB at regional and national conferences

RHAA is also an affiliate of regional and national associations including the Great Lakes Affiliates of College & University Residence Halls (GLACURH) and the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH).

RHAA meetings are open to all residents. They occur every Wednesday at 5:15 p.m. Each building elects members for the RHAA general membership. Elected members vote on issues of policy and budget in representation of their respective buildings.

For more information on RHAA e-mail them at sorhaa@uwgb.edu.


NRHH (National Residence Hall Honorary) is an organization of on-campus student leaders who represent the top 1% of on-campus leaders. NRHH members are selected based on the two core values service and recognition. NRHH strives to promote leadership development programming and recognition of those who exemplify the characteristics of their values. NRHH has elected officers and general members. Meetings occur every other Wednesday at 9:00 p.m.

NRHH is well known for the “Of the Month” (OTM) Awards. OTMs are a national program where campus leaders are nominated and selected to win various awards for their leadership and programming. Campus winners are forwarded to the state level for competition, and if successful, then onto the national level. UWGB’s Phoenix Flame Chapter is the proud recipient of numerous state OTMs and even a few national winners!!

Anyone can write an OTM, just follow the instructions on the NRHH website or email them at sonrhh@uwgb.edu.
