General Information About Student Organization Advisors

Advisors are critical to the success of a student organization. An active and involved advisor can help shape a student leader and the course of a student organization. This is mutually beneficial for both the students and the advisor. Some benefits include:

  • Engaging outside of the classroom
  • Sharing common interests
  • Continuity of the group as members leave/graduate
  • Encouragement, support, and guidance to help students make decisions

All student organizations are encouraged to have an on-campus faculty/staff advisor.  To help better understand your role and responsibility as a student organization advisor, please download and read the following:

Additionally, the Student Organizations Handbook is an excellent resource for advisors.  The Student Organizations team is also here to help.  Please contact us if you have questions, need clarification, or want more information about student organization advising. 

Thank you for taking the time to invest in our students as a student organization advisor. We appreciate your efforts.
