Residence Activities & Programming Committee

The Residence Activities & Programming (RAP) Committee plans, organizes, and manages social, recreational (not including the Intramural sports program), and academic programming for their residence.  

There is a RAP Committee for each residence. This committee is a collaborative group that brings together all the stakeholders who have a role and vested interest in providing activities and programming for the residents of their building. The committee will be chaired by the residence co-ordinator and include:

  • residents assistants
  • residence society executive
  • charity committee representative
  • mental health committee representative
  • sustainability committee representative
  • residence intramural sports representatives
  • returning resident representative(s)
  • new residents representative(s)

The committee will meet bi-weekly as scheduled by the residence co-ordinator. Quorum for the meetings shall be 50%+1 of the council.

Only activities and programs approved by the residence coordinator and the Residence Life Office are eligible for funding from the Residence Life Office.

These procedures outline the manner by which the Residence Life staff and the RAP Committee receive approval and funding for activities and programming delivered to the students living on campus.

An Activity is a one-time event (e.g. field trip, residence “day”, special guest presentation, etc.).
Programming is an on-going event that continues throughout the semester (e.g. Trivia nights, display boards, etc.)
