Student Involvement provides resources to equip faculty and staff serving as Student Organization Advisors. Advisors provide valuable students with valuable input and assistance as they are executing the needs of their organization. Student Organization Advisors are trained once every 4 years. Materials from training sessions will be emailed upon request.
Role of Advisor:
By sharing both knowledge about the university and personal experiences, the advisor can assist the organization in the conduct of its activities. Advisors should encourage and advise the organization in carrying on an active and significant program and work with the officers to promote the effective administration of the organization. In addition, valuable, mutually rewarding, co-curricular relationships between students and advisors are fostered. The relationship between an advisor and an organization will vary from year to year and individual to individual. However, the student/advisor relationship can be crucial to the success of the organization. It is important that the advisor and the organization communicate their expectations to each other. The advisor should be very clear about the things he/she will do, and the things he/she will not do.
Advisor training takes place during the Fall & Spring semesters. The upcoming Spring 2022 Advisor Training session will take place on Thursday, February 3rd from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM via Zoom. Advisors due for training will be invited via e-mail.
Student Organization Advisors must complete the training in their first year of advising and are encouraged to complete training every 4 years.
