Case studies and discussion will address some of the more common yet tricky scenarios that arise in student organizations. There will be ample opportunity to learn from other RSO advisors, as well as SLiCE professionals, and share different scenarios and best practices yourself, to gain a more holistic understanding of GOOD practice in contrast to the more BAD/UGLY practices of being a RSO advisor.
Goals and Target Audience:
AUDIENCE: Registered Student Organization (RSO) advisors. Considering there are nearly 500 RSOs at CSU, and being the office and professionals who work to directly to support these RSOs, our targeted audience is CSU-employed faculty/staff advisors (or graduate students who have received approval from their academic advisor) who, too, and more specifically support and challenge RSOs to whom they advise. GOALS: Advisors will be able to identify best practices when associated with at least 3 different scenarios related to student organizations. Advisors will be able to broaden at least 25% of their understanding of the functions and roles they should be engaging in and practicing as RSO advisors. Advisors will be able clarify the differences between the SLiCE's expectations of RSO advisors and the University's requirements of RSO advisors.
