Supervision and advising

Supervising: you CAN tell people what to do and hold them accountable accordingly.

Advising: you can encourage students to make specific choices, and invite them into conversations but ultimately they make the final decision. You can hold them accountable but there are different expectations involved.

Advising Student Groups and Organizations

by Norbert W. Dunkel and John H. ScHuh (1998).


Why advise
Why Advise?

  • Sometimes advising is a part of our job

  • (JZ: Student Association, Finance Committee, programming board,

  • commuter organization, MW: F&S Life, IC: pom squad, and

  • dance team)

  • Staff members are sometimes asked to advise during a particularly challenging year (JJ3)

  • Sometimes students pull our heart strings and you just can’t say no to advising a student organization (BHL: Sigma Nu, and BH: APO)

  • Advising CAN be meaningful and rewarding.

  • A good resume builder.

  • A great way to have more student contact (depending on your job you may miss student contact and advising allows you to stay connected).

Student orgs

Generally Speaking… needs…

If advising is in your job description or if you are working with larger organizations which tend to provide more programming, the students know that you get “paid” to advise them and can be more demanding of your time (and your patience).

Smaller orgs. tend to be a little more flexible and even appreciative ;)
