  3. 3. WHY GOT GRIT? Got Grit RA Training is designed with the goal of “inspiring leaders of tomorrow starting with today.” This two-week comprehensive training will introduce RAs to the breadth and depth of skills, experiences, information, and resources that they will need to be most successful in their roles. Guided by relevant theories, learning outcomes, and competencies, this training will encourage RAs to learn, grow, experience, evaluate, make mistakes, be challenged, develop connections, build relationships, and increase confidence.
  4. 4. WHY GOT GRIT? Day 1 of the 2-week training will include an introduction to campus resources, discussion and reflection about qualities of a good RA, and an abundance of icebreakers and teambuilding activities. It is critical to build a strong foundation of teamwork and chemistry before advancing to more challenging topics later in the week - Day 1 is designed to help construct this foundation. The RA role can be rewarding, but can also be “gritty” at times, and can require access to inner grit. Got Grit RA Training will provide RAs with the foundations to dig deep, find their inner resilience, and be fully prepared to embrace what will likely be the most challenging, rewarding, enjoyable job they’ve ever had.
