Helpful Information for Advisors

2017-2018 Elon University Advisor Handbook (coming soon)
The advisor handbook is updated each year and contains information regarding: honor code/student conduct, professional boundaries between faculty/staff and students, hazing, space requests, van and travel policies, fundraising, publicity, and more!

ACPA is a national organization for higher education. The Commission for Student Involvement, within ACPA, determined a need for an Advisor Manual that would be available online for advisors and practitioners.

The role of an advisor may vary based on the student organization and should be negotiated between student leaders and their advisor.  This form is designed for advisors and student leaders to check off their “agreement level” on each of these potential advisor roles (Modified from resources from Eastern Oregon University).
