Working together, the Community Leaders support and carry out objectives, policies and procedures of Texas A&M University at Galveston, the Division of Student Affairs, and the Student Life Office. They are available for conflict mediation, help residents with transitioning and making connections to campus resources, and enjoy providing engaging programs for their residents to enjoy. Community Leaders staff the main office from 8AM - 2AM daily and are on-call after 2AM until the office re-opens next day.
