Registered Student Organization Group Advisor Program
What is the RSO Group Advisor Program?
The Group Advisor Program is NOT for academic advising – it’s for Registered Student Organizations.
Each registered student organization (RSO) must either (a) have an Advisor as defined by Policy Manual Section VI.D.13.02(c) or (b) participate in the RSO Group Advisor Program. The RSO Group Advisor Program allows registered student organizations who do not have a permanent Advisor to continue with activities, recruitment, and more without penalty.
Who do we need in the RSO Group Advisor Program?
“You don’t have to choose between doing good and doing well.” - Tim Cook
Volunteers from staff and faculty are needed to guide RSO members in the absence of a permanent advisor. If you or any employee you know is interested, please contact the Office of Student Life to join the Group Advisor Program pool. When an RSO in need comes forward, the Office of Student Life will contact all employees in the Group Advisor Program pool. When an employee agrees to assist the RSO on a short-term basis, the Office of Student Life will provide training and support to get them started. Participation is voluntary.
When will we need RSO Advisors?
We will work with you so you don’t advise when you are unavailable.
Communications with the RSO Group Advisor Program are year-round, so please let us know if you are unavailable during specific terms (i.e., summer).
Where are the RSOs located?
Our students may meet at any of the LSC-Kingwood campuses.
GAP members will be contacted for RSOs in need at LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Atascocita Center and LSC-Process Technology Center.
Why do we need the Group Advisor Program?
“We need to keep hope alive and strive to do better.” - Kofi Annan
This program exists to facilitate new Registered Student Organizations and those who are in transition between advisors. When an Advisor resigns, RSOs will be connected with the Group Advisor Program until a permanent advisor can be identified.
