Resources and information for student organization advisors

On behalf of The Office of Student Engagement, we cannot thank those who have chosen to be a student organization advisor enough! We recognize how much time and effort you put into being a supportive advisor, and we appreciate you!

As an advisor, you assume a number of roles. It is up to you and your organization to determine what exactly your role within the organization is. Aside from being the person who signs off on financial documents and a variety of other forms, the advisor can make the difference between a mediocre organization and an excellent organization.  Organizations often utilize their advisor for assistance with solving problems, resolving conflict, recruiting new members and fundraising efforts.

Are you interested in advising a student organization?

The Office of Student Engagement continues to welcome new student organizations every year. In order to complete the recognition process, student organizations are required to have an advisor (any full-time faculty/staff member at Ithaca College). Some organizations have an advisor in mind when starting the process, but many do not! In those instances, they come to the OSE looking for an advisor. Please fill out this form if you'd like to include yourself as someone who may be interested in advising a student organization.

If you and a student organization seem like you could potentially be a good match, we will introduce you via e-mail and you can meet with them individually to discuss expectations and ultimately decide on your own if it'll be a good fit. Thanks for your interest!
