Faculty/Staff Advisors serve as the primary advisors to Whitewater's 200+ student organizations and clubs. They are full time employees of the institution that have agreed to serve in this volunteer capacity. Each year confirmation of their position is sent from the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs to formalize their commitment and coverage. Without the service of these individuals the quality of the student experience would be much less. Career & Leadership Development is very thankful for their time and efforts.
Individuals interested in assisting student organizations and clubs should contact Career & Leadership Development at 262-472-1471.In hopes of supporting and ever-improving the co-curricular experience for our students and those individuals serving them, a shift in our advisor philosophy is defined below.
Key Changes: Those serving as advisors are called Campus Advisors and their expectations are listed below. They will focus on the academic support of those involved and the connection to the University.
