The only manual for faculty and staff who work directly with student organizations

Advising Student Groups and Organizations is a one-of-a-kind book that equips faculty members and administrators to competently and confidently serve as advisers to clubs and other student groups. The second edition is here to help colleges and universities keep up with the skyrocketing number of student groups and shifts in the legal landscape. New chapters on crucial topics, updated case studies, and a full suite of practical resources simplify the process of navigating student organizations.

With Advising Student Groups and Organizations, educators can turn the chore of advising into a rewarding activity that benefits everyone.

And in this fully updated edition, new chapters contain everything you need to know about:

  • Advising fraternities and sororities
  • Navigating laws such as FERPA, Title IX, and the Clery Act
  • Working with online distance students and using social media as an advising tool
  • Conflict mediation and training student advisors

You'll want to keep this guide handy so you can take advantage of tools like reflection questions, activities, checklists, and sample forms.
