The Senior Staff Assistant is an integral part of the University’s Greek Court, Eastern's on-campus fraternity and sorority housing complex. As staff members of University Housing & Dining Services, working in conjunction with the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Programs, SSAs are committed to the important task of building community, assisting in the development of an educational environment and supporting the goals of the University.

Senior Staff Assistants serve as liaisons and a resource to students. They promote the integration of all aspects of campus life and assist the chapter leadership in establishing an environment in the chapter house that is supportive of the educational objectives of Eastern Illinois University.

Senior Staff Assistants are expected to display sensitivity to individual differences, acceptance of all students, and the ability to listen. Senior Staff Assistants are expected to serve as a positive role model and to exhibit consistency in performing their duties.

Senior Staff Assistants may not serve or be elected to the Presidency or any other positions in their affiliated fraternity/sorority that would require them to live in their own chapter house.
