Advisor Resources

Student Club and Organization Advisors, we support you! 

Check out our Advisor Resource Guide for more resources and information about being an advisor to a student organization here at West Chester University.

The Resource Guide is not meant to be totally inclusive or applicable to every organization, but it may serve as a guide when determining the role that you will play. The purpose of this guide is to help Advisors navigate the resources available to them. It is a collection of best practices in the field of higher education; however, it is not a magical formula for guaranteed success. The contents should enhance the Advisor’s effectiveness, rapport with students, and overall enjoyment of the advising experience.
