Advising a Student Organization
RSO Advisors play an important role in the functioning and development of our students and student organizations. Not only is it a requirement for ALL registered student organizations to have an UM Faculty/Staff Advisor, but research shows that involvement in co-curricular activities, such as registered student organizations, correlates positively with persistence, achievement, satisfaction, career advancement, and educational development.
As an advisor, we hope you will help your registered student organization develop programs that foster their commitment to academic excellence, provide the best possible experience to our undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, and assist our students in serving our community, state, and world.
Advisors often work behind the scenes and in tandem with student leaders to “make things happen.” We hope the resources below will assist you as you navigate your role. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever need anything!
