Vision for Advisors

Club Advisors are experienced faculty and staff 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 impact 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 both faculty and staff 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 passion and interests. 

To express your interest in becoming an advisor, please submit an advisor interest form for your specific campus or reach out to a student club directly.

What are the requirements of a primary advisor?

The Primary Club Advisor must serve ASU in the role of professor or lecturer with two years of experience at ASU (including: professor, associate professor, assistant professor, clinical professor, principal lecturer, senior lecturer, or lecturer) or as a staff member with at least three years of relevant student support experience. Primary Club Advisors create a cohesive and holistic experience that transcends the classroom by connecting the University’s learning experience with student clubs and organizations. 

Primary club advisors attend club meetings as determined between the club officers and themselves. They are required to attend any event  that meets the general requirements outlined in the “Special Event Registry.”

 

What are the requirements of a secondary advisor?

Secondary Club advisors may include faculty with less than two years of experience at ASU as well as the research ranks, instructors, graduate students, or staff members with less than three years of relevant experience.  They can offer additional guidance, in an area of their interest, to student members. 

Secondary advisors attend meetings and events when the primary advisor is unavailable to be present at them and/or as determined between the club officers, the primary advisor, and themselves.
