Student-led clubs and organizations each have two types of advisors: a program advisor who works in Student Activities/Leadership Development, and a Faculty Advisor.
Program Advisors are essential to the success of clubs and organizations. Each recognized club and organization needs to have a Program Advisor in order to be active on campus. This is to help guide them in goal setting and working towards achieving the purpose of their organization.
Each club must also have a Faculty Advisor. Faculty Advisors are full-time staff who have knowledge and interest in the club's mission. Faculty Advisor help student organizations by connecting them to new opportunities, such as conferences or professional networks, and supporting their overall vision.
