Serving as a student organization advisor is perceived as a noble cause. You have the opportunity to assist students in their pursuit of learning outside the classroom. It is, in fact, a rewarding effort for the student and the educator, provided it is done correctly. However, if it goes incorrectly, this noble act can quickly turn into a nightmare.
Whether you have already jumped headlong into the role of student organization advisor or beginning to consider such a role, becoming familiar with behavioral standards and risk-mitigating strategies is critical for success. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to best serve your students while protecting yourself and your school from litigation.
