Every student organization is required to have a full-time faculty or professional staff member serve as its advisor. Advisors are an integral part of any organization. Fraternity & Sorority organizations are strongly encouraged to have a faculty/staff advisor, but are permitted to utilize authorized non-faculty/staff advisors (generally alumni/alumnae members). 

General Responsibilities for Advisors

  • Serve as a resource and mentor for organization officers
  • Assist the organization with meeting its goals
  • Serve as a liaison between the organization and the university community
  • Be knowledgeable of university policies and procedures
  • Attend events and meetings as discussed with organization officers
  • Help mitigate risk for all organization activities
  • Serve as unofficial historians for the organization (especially if they have served for many years)
  • Aid in annual officer transitions

Additional information for student organization advisors is available in the Student Organization Manual.
