Resident assistants are unique among undergraduate leaders since they straddle the roles of student and university employee simultaneously. Through a phenomenographic approach, this study examines how Black women resident assistants (RAs) describe institutional support at a historically White institution (HWI). Three findings were identified: academic spaces and relationships were barriers to receiving support; self-selected student services offered both opportunities and barriers to support; and residential professional staff and fellow RAs created spaces for support.
驻校助理在本科领导中是独一无二的，因为他们同时跨越了学生和大学雇员的角色。通过现象学方法，本研究调查了黑人女性居民助理 (RA) 如何描述历史悠久的白人机构 (HWI) 的机构支持。确定了三个发现：学术空间和关系是获得支持的障碍；自行选择的学生服务提供了支持的机会和障碍；和住宅专业人员和 RA 同事创造了支持空间。
