Become an Advisor

Vision for Advisors

Club Advisors are experienced faculty members who formally mentor student leaders and connect students who share similar passions and interests through a club experience. Club Advisors serve as a bridge between the university and student organizations to create a cohesive and holistic experience both inside and outside of the classroom. Club Advisors play an active role in guiding students in their pursuit of leadership development, connecting students to resources, and positively impacting the overall well-being of the students they serve.

Why be a student organization advisor?

Advising student organizations can be very rewarding. It provides opportunities for faculty to interact with students in a different context. Advisors can have an important impact on student development and campus engagement, serve as a mentor to students, connect with university colleagues, and engage with students and organizations who may share similar passions and interests.

Eligible advisors must serve ASU in the role of professor, teaching professor, or clinical professor, with two years of experience at ASU (including: professor, associate professor, assistant professor, clinical professor, clinical associate professor, clinical assistant professor, teaching professor, teaching associate professor, or teaching assistant professor).
