WWW Posting Date: 1/15/2002 

Responsible Office: Student Affairs

Each student organization must have a designated faculty advisor throughout the school
year in order to function as a unit. This advisor must be registered in the Office
of the Assistant Vice President for Student Advancement. One (1) University representative
is required to be in attendance at functions on campus sponsored by student organizations
(student parties, dances, or other social activities). The representative may be a
member of the University faculty or administrative staff, employed by the University,
who has voluntarily agreed to work with the student organization as provided in the
organization’s constitution. The advisor should be free to act separately from the
agent of the University. It is also the individual responsibility of the faculty advisor
to abide by and to assist in ensuring that all of the members of the organization
abide by University, State, and local laws. The behavior of a faculty advisor as related
to the student organization is subject to review by the University’s Student Organization
