The Dean of Students Office recognizes and encourages student development outside the classroom through involvement with faculty and peers. As an advisor to a registered student organization (RSO), you provide students with individualized attention that "places the learner at the center of learning scholarship." It is through these valuable interactions that students experience the small-college atmosphere and large-university opportunities as outlined in the Educate • Connect • Elevate Strategic Plan.
While there is no standard level of involvement for organization advisors, it is important for student leaders and advisors set mutual expectations to help guide their interactions and roles. Use the following resources to make the most of your advising experience.
RSO Presidents and Treasurers are required to complete an orientation to maintain their RSO's status with the University. RSO Advisors are also provided with an orientation to assist with understanding their role. For more information, visit the RSO resources webpage.
