Thank you for contributing to the creation of a vibrant student life by advising a student organization at UMBC! Student Life greatly appreciates the time and effort you put forth to helping our students learn and grow through their student organization experience.
Involvement in a student organization can play an important role in the development and learning of our students. Research shows that students engaging in co-curricular involvement perform better academically and are generally happier with their college experience. The relationships built between students and their advisors can be one of the most important pieces of this experience, and the discussions you have with them are often some of their most influential learning opportunities.
If you have been asked to serve in the role of advisor to a student organization, we encourage you to look through this information to familiarize yourself with the position. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Romy Hübler or make an appointment.
Student Life will be hosting periodic advisor training sessions, which will allow a more in-depth examination and discussion of how to be an effective advisor.
Upcoming advisor roundtables are on the following dates:
|Advisor Roundtable I||February 27, 2017||12-1pm||Commons 329|
|Advisor Roundtable II||April 3, 2017||12-1pm||Commons 329|
*Lunch will be provided for all of these sessions*
Thank you for your committing your time and energy to creating strong co-curricular learning opportunities for UMBC students. We truly appreciate your contributions to our student life community.
