Looking for Meaningful Involvement on Campus? Become a student organization advisor! Student organizations are required to have a faculty or staff advisor in order to be active on campus. Among the many benefits of becoming an advisor, here are a few to note: opportunity to get to know students on an individual basis; satisfaction of contributing to students’ development; opportunity to impact the KU community on a different level; share an area of expertise; learn about student interests; valuable and quantifiable curriculum vitae and resume material.
Advisors typically will attend meetings and events, when possible. The advisor also signs forms, makes reservations and reviews the events and activities being planned. Advisors are encouraged to attend social events, service projects and meetings if appropriate; help or advise the organizations on how to handle situations that arise when planning events; act as a liaison with professional organizations that may support the organization; provide ideas for creating new social functions; provide assistance in managing the organization’s budget and financial matters.
We currently have student organizations that wish to become active, but need to find an advisor for the group. For more information about this meaningful experience, please contact Leah Cassellia at firstname.lastname@example.org or x3-4867.
