Resources for Student Organization Advisors
CSI has developed these resources to aid in the development of our advisors and, in turn, the development of our student leaders and organizations:
The Advisor Manual has helpful information from program planning and advising styles to University policies and procedures.
The ACPA Advisor Manual was developed in the Spring of 2005 by the Commission for Student Involvement of ACPA (American College Personnel Association) as a "standardized" Advisor Manual to be used as a resource for advisors and practitioners.
The Student Organization Advisors portal in OrgSync allows advisors to connect with one another and offers the opportunity for discussion board style conversations with other advisors about best practices and tips pertaining to specific topics such as fundraising, advertising, and event collaboration.
The Advisor Development Series is a combination of round table discussions and presentation style workshops to help develop you as an advisor and offer opportunities for you to network with other organization advisors.
The Advisor Mentoring Program pairs newer advisors with seasoned advisors who serve as a resource on advising student organizations at UWG.
The Advisor Recognition Program regularly celebrates the accomplishments and dedication of our organization advisors. This includes Student Organization Advisor of the Month awards and a Student Organization Advisor of the Year award.
The Advisor Email Listserv is a communication tool used by the Center for Student Involvement to share information and updates regularly. We automatically add all faculty/staff members that are listed as an advisor for a student organization in OrgSync. If you feel you should be subscribed to this listserv, please contact the Center for Student Involvement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additionally, the Center for Student Involvement is a resource for Advisors. Please feel free to contact our office at 678-839-6526 or email@example.com with any questions.
