Student Leadership and Engagement

Advisor Resources

Advising a student organization is a unique and wonderful experience to connect with Clemson undergraduate, graduate and Bridge students in thinking deeply about and engaging in the social, scientific, economic and professional challenges of our times. Your role as an advisor directly relates to the Clemson legacy of service and collaboration.

Student organizations at Clemson are student-initiated and student-led, and in the process of reaching their goals, student organizations may turn to their advisors as mentors, mediators, educators, encouragers or navigators of the wider university. Your student organization’s category may also affect your role. Please review the resources below, and if you have any questions, email.
