Being a student organization advisor is both rewarding and challenging. We are here to provide you with resources to tackle this impactful experience!
All organizations are required to have at least one faculty/staff advisor. An advisor is defined as a full-time CU Denver employee, faculty, staff, or administrator. Advisors play a key role in the development of an organization and its individual members. Prior to agreeing to be an advisor, we recommend you determine the role and time commitment required.
The day-to-day operations of the organization should remain the responsibility of the officers/members, not the advisor. An advisor's main purpose is to provide guidance, assistance and mentorship for the organization.
