Student Organization Advisors

All recognized clubs and organizations are required to have an advisor who is a full-time member of Clemson University’s faculty or staff.  The choice of who an organization’s advisor will be is at the discretion of the organization and the chosen advisor.

An advisor is more than a signature. Advisors help students take full advantage of co-curricular learning and serve as a role model and mentor for members of recognized student organizations. Student-faculty/staff interaction outside of the classroom enhances the overall college experience and reaps many benefits - both for the students and the individual advisor.

You may view our Advisor Agreement for additonal information about advisor expectations.
