Regional and National Involvement

The University of Arizona RHA is an affiliated member of the National Association of College and University Residence Halls (NACURH). Together with schools from across the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho and the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, we form the Intermountain Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls (IACURH). IACURH is one of eight regions within NACURH. The University of Arizona and the other affiliated members of IACURH work together to improve the lives of the residents not only on our own campuses, but also within the IACURH region and all across the nation. The primary way in which the University of Arizona does this is by sending delegations of students to attend the annual IACURH and NACURH conferences.

Why go to a conference?

At an IACURH or NACURH conference UA RHA delegates will meet students  from campuses all around IACURH and NACURH. At an IACURH and NACURH you will be able to experience a variety of programs and events put on by students teaching things like Leadership, Programming, Sustainability, Social justice and many other diverse categories. Attending a conference can open a lot of doors in your future. From becoming an RA, to joining the RHA E-board or just becoming a better leader, going to conference can help you get there! Not sure what role you want to take on next? Attending a conference is a great way to develop and hone your leadership skills and learn more that can help you with any future plans.

How to go to a conference:

Every year, residents on campus have the opportunity to represent the UA RHA in both of these conferences. Conferences are a great opportunity to break out of your shell, gain leadership skills, network with other school representatives and learn more about the region and nation. Applications will be released via the RHA list-serv and as well here. For more information about NACURH Affiliated Conferences please contact the National Communications Coordinator (NCC), Lupe Godoy at .
