How to Obtain or Change Your Club Advisor

All student clubs are required to have a faculty or staff advisor employed by Monmouth University. Though not encouraged for longevity or ease of access reasons, part-time employees and adjunct faculty are allowed to serve as club advisors. If you currently have an advisor, but would like to switch advisors we recommend that you first inform your current advisor of your desire for a new advisor and once a new advisor has been identified, please notify the Office of Student Activities of the change.

Student organizations needing help finding an advisor should visit the Office of Student Activities and Student Center Operations. The Office of Student Activities and Student Center Operations will contact faculty and staff members to determine their interest in advising a student organization. The Student Activities staff encourages the student organization officers to make an appointment with the potential advisor. This gives the group the chance to determine if the person is right for the organization and gives the potential advisor the chance to see if the organization is right for him or her to advise. If both parties agree, a new roster with the new advisor’s information must be completed and turned in to the Office of Student Activities and Student Center Operations.
