Description

The Assumption College Office of Residential Life in 2012, at the direction of the College president, was tasked with enhancing resident assistant (RA) education surrounding Catholic faith tradition. In learning Roman Catholic concepts and teaching, the RAs would gain a deeper understanding of the mission of the College. A yearlong series, developed by senior residential life staff, focused on the moral and ethical teachings of the Catholic Church. The initial program sessions, called “Foundation Fridays," were developed around the documentary series Catholicism hosted by Bishop Robert Barron. Over the last several years of the Foundation Friday training series, RAs shared critical feedback that guided future sessions to include small group interaction, reflection, and content with practical implications for their daily work as RAs. This presentation will highlight the history of the Foundation Friday program, discuss session content from the 2017-18 series, and review what was learned from the assessment data.
