They knew historically things had been done some way, but in no case was anything ever written down on paper,’ Piney said. After the students came to SGA, Piney met with Associate Dean and Director of Residential Life Robert Jose, who then worked with other administration officials and senior RAs to come up with the points in the document. ‘One of the things we wanted to make clear was ‘OK this is the protocol, this is what they’ve been doing for a long time, this is what’s allowed and this is their rights,” Piney said.

‘I wanted a safeguard for RAs, just as we have a handbook for everything else,’ she said.
