Student Organization Advisor Training

Every student organization is required to have a UM-Flint faculty or staff advisor. An advisor is more than just a name on paper, but an integral part of the organization itself. The advisor provides consistency from year-to-year for an organization as a source of institution knowledge, provider of reasonable and sound advisement, and as a responsible agent of the University for the club/organization activities. Every academic year SIL provides training to notify advisors of any changes in policies, help identify free resources available to students and complete Campus Security Authority (CSA) which is a federal requirement. For more information, contact Chris DeEulis or Jaleesa Herrington.
