Tasks and Election Procedure

Roosevelt’s All Student Association (RASA) is a student association that is open to all students of University College Roosevelt. RASA is the main Board that oversees social life at UCR, which can mean everything from sports to parties to Open Mic nights and more! They support the activities of many societies and teams (see their website for an overview of all committees). These committees are completely student run and allow for a vibrant social life in Middelburg. In addition to these responsibilities, RASA assists UCR with the organization of large events such as Orientation Week, Convocation, and Graduation, and sells merchandise such as t-shirts and hoodies during the semester.

The RASA Board consists of six members that are elected by the student body during the annual Election General Assembly. Any member of the student association can sign up to run for a position, and if elected, they keep the position for a full academic year (September 1 until August 31). RASA’s Daily Board consists of a Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer, who have a reduced course load to accommodate their RASA tasks. The Daily Board is supported by three Committee Affairs Officers (CAO), who are each in charge of and support a third of RASA’s societies. They make sure plenty of fun events are being organized and that societies are on track with their goals.
