What is MORHA?
MORHA, or the Michigan Organization of Residence Hall Associations, is a state-wide organization dedicated to fostering communication and networking between the different residence hall organizations in universities across Michigan. By providing a strong framework of communication through meetings, conferences, shared resources, and different networking efforts, MORHA helps to develop leaders across the state as well as make the on-campus living experience a more dynamic and exciting environment.
What does MORHA do?
The historical purpose of MORHA was to coordinate and facilitate a single large conference annually where different schools could present and share different traditions and ideas to the general body. To handle the planning process, several meetings were held throughout the year for the board and MOCCs to meet and prepare for the conference.
Eventually, family members were brought into business meetings, and now each of the four official MORHA gatherings are full of presentations, learning opportunities and involved students. Outside of these meetings, MORHA members share ideas with their schools and work towards further collaboration with other schools through reports and other communication outlets.
