Advisor Resource

An advisor's primary responsibility is to make a strong commitment to the group and to aid in personal growth of the individuals in that group. Above all, advisers should be available to students on an individual and group basis, maintaining an open and honest relationship with the members.

Advisors play a key role in development of Certified Student Clubs and Organizations and its individual members. Being an effective advisor requires developing a style that matches the organization's needs and goals. When developing this style, it is important to keep in mind the goals of the organization, the types of activities they are involved in, and the overall mission of Highline College. Prior to agreeing to be an adviser, 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. The main objective of an adviser is to be available to guide and assist the officers/members in the mission and goals of the organization. Communication is essential and how active or passive the adviser's role should be negotiated between the advisior and organization prior to certification.
