T he following expectations are intended to help advisors. They are not rendered with guarantees that, if faithfully observed, they will yield success. They should enhance the effectiveness, quality or rapport, and acquisition of personal enjoyment and satisfaction for the advisor. Perhaps, most importantly, they may be helpful.
Be available for regularly scheduled meetings of your organization. Meet with officers of your organization regularly to discuss internal organizational difficulties, such as communications, delegation of responsibilities, etc., and to assist the officers with their responsibilities. Assist with event planning and development. Attend the various functions of your organization (other than meetings, such as fundraisers, special projects and programs, etc.); however, usually such attendance is not mandated.* Please note: it is highly preferred that advisors attend events when more than 50 people are expected to attend, the event is open to the public, a guest speaker is invited to present, the event is a rally or demonstration, if the event is off campus and/or if off campus individuals are invited to attend an on campus event. Be familiar with the financial status, constitution and activities of your student organization. *A note for sports club advisors: since a lecturer or full time professional staff person/administrator is required to attend off campus trips more than four hours away and over-night trips, sports club advisors should be prepared to attend these events.
Assist members with personal, professional and leadership development when possible. Be familiar with the institution’s policies and rules that govern students and student organizations and should strongly encourage your organization to adhere to the policies and rules of the University as well to obey local statutes and the laws of the State and Nation. The advisor should report behaviors that violate the Student Code of Conduct to the Dean of Students. Fill the appropriate role of an advisor; avoid trying to become “one of the gang,” or to be unavailable to the group. Offer advice when it is requested and offer counsel, even though it may not have been sought. Assist student organizations with assessing their activities. Ensure all paperwork submitted to Student Leadership Programs is thorough, complete and timely. Keep Student Leadership Programs informed of any member/officer changes.
Ensure all application and renewal paperwork is submitted by the appropriate deadline. Ensure members/officers who are deemed ineligible do not to take part in club/organization activities. Review printed and online organization materials for spelling and grammar prior to submission to Student Leadership Programs. Review and respond to s sent by Student Leadership programs and forward accordingly. Complete advisor orientation requirement for your organization to retain registered/recognized status. Be aware of available/required forms by visiting the Student Leadership Programs website. Facilitate the transference of information and materials from one year to the next.
Know the limits of “rescuing” the group or program; within reason, allow student organizations to fail and help them learn from their mistakes. Share your knowledge and expertise with members when possible. Do not accept an invitation to serve as an advisor or to continue to serve if you are not prepared to fulfill the expectations of such. Don’t hesitate to engage in the general discussion of organizational matters at meetings; however, do not dominate discussion or become the focus of attention. Remember that students often might not accept your advice as “gospel.” Expect to be challenged; however, do not interpret this as an indication that your services are no longer desired.
Your involvement as an advisor depends on the organization and its leaders. Attending the meetings and activities on a regular basis is the best way to stay informed of all activities and projects. You should clarify, between you and the organization, what you role as an advisor will involve. Be prepared for your role to change each year with the new officers and members. Students benefit from having advisors who are committed, active and involved with the organization and its activities.
The following are the eligibility requirements for officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary) in your organization. Please be sure that officers meet these requirements before submitting their information to Student Leadership Programs. All officers of a student organization at CI: Have a cumulative, CI, and semester GPA of at least 2.5 (Undergraduates) Must be enrolled in no less than six units at CSU Channel Islands (Undergraduates) Have a cumulative, CI semester, and Transfer GPA of at least 2.5 (Transfers) Be in good academic and behavioral standing (not on academic or disciplinary probation) Be free of any holds on University records Have a cumulative, CI, and semester GPA of at least 3.0 (Post Baccalaureate) Must be enrolled in no less than three units at CSU Channel Islands (Post Baccalaureate) See Policy on Eligibility Requirements for Membership in Student Clubs and Organizations (SA ) for more information (located at: Just a reminder: Please take note that the requirement is 2.5 cumulative AND semester. This was a policy change made in May 2010.
The following are the eligibility requirements for members in your organization. Please be sure that members meet these requirements before submitting their information to Student Leadership Programs. Have a cumulative and semester GPA of at least 2.0 Must be enrolled in no less than three units at CSU Channel Islands Be in good academic and behavioral standing (not on academic or disciplinary probation) Be free of any holds on University records Failure to meet the above requirements will result in the student member’s removal from the Student Organization’s roster. The student may not perform his/her stated duties. Student Organizations out of compliance could lose recognition. Just a reminder: Please take note that the requirement is 2.0 cumulative AND semester. This was a policy change made in May 2010.
Eligibility will be checked for the members and officers who submit a Member Agreements Form. If they are on the roster but did NOT submit a Member Agreements Form, they will not be verified and can not be in your organization. Presidents and Advisors will be notified of eligible and ineligible members/officers. Presidents and Advisors should ensure that ineligible members/officers do not assume a role for which they are ineligible.

First time in college students without a CI GPA cannot serve as officers, but may participate as general members their first semester. This is incorporated into the University policy in order to ensure first time in college students successfully transition to the University prior to assuming responsibility of a student organization. Student organizations may impose more restrictive requirements in their constitution(s) or bylaws. It is required that student organizations have at least: FIVE eligible students A president A secretary
Student Leadership Programs will be implementing a proposed policy pertaining to student involvement during pre-finals and finals week (to be voted on by the President’s Council this semester). The policy was created in an effort to ensure the students’ primary focus is on their curricular endeavors during pre-finals and finals weeks. Students must be able to devote their time to review in preparation for their final exams. Therefore, the following will be employed: No student club/organization may hold meetings or sponsor events during pre-finals or finals weeks. No co-curricular event or activity that requires students to plan, develop or attend may be held during pre-finals or finals weeks. This includes informal (e.g. team dinners, banquets, etc.) and formal (e.g. meetings) group gatherings.
The CSU mandates that no campus can recognize any fraternity, sorority, living group, honor society, or other student organization that discriminates on the basis of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, color, age, gender, marital status, citizenship, sexual orientation, or disability. Student organizations found in violation of this could lose recognition and members/officers may be held accountable to through the judicial process outlined in the Student Code of Conduct.
Hazing is defined as requiring or encouraging any act, whether or not the act is voluntarily agreed upon, in conjunction with initiation or continued membership or participation in any group that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm or humiliation. Official recognition of a student organization may be withdrawn for hazing or conspiracy to haze. (As defined in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Article 2, Standards for Student Conduct, Section (b)(8). Individual students may be disciplined for hazing under Section 41301(b)(8). In other words, you can not require one sub-group of individuals do any activity that you would not expect the entire group to do.
This data is provided for your review to highlight behaviors your organization might not realize are considered hazing. Please take a careful look.
All student activities departments at CSU campuses must abide by Executive Order No that stipulates requirements relating to clubs/organizations. These requirements cover the following: – Chartering and recognition policies – Withholding and withdrawing recognition – Minimum number of students involved in an organization – Requirements of advisors – Off-Campus Student Activities – Club Sports Insurance Please see for more information.http://www.calstate.edu/eo/EO-1006.pdf
Executive Order 1006 requires that all policies stated in the Student Code of Conduct apply to off-campus student organization-related activities. The Student Conduct Code sets the standard of expected behavior and describes conduct that is unacceptable and subject to discipline through the university's disciplinary process. For instance, this means that the Alcohol Policy applies to off campus Club-Related activities so if your organization has a meeting off campus, no attendees can drink alcohol (even if they are 21 years or older).
As previously stated, intoxication by any member of a University registered/recognized student organization at any University-sponsored on OR off-campus event is prohibited. The University Alcohol Policy is located at: 003.htm
A public showing (on or off campus) of a video/DVD at a student organization meeting or event may seem like a harmless, inexpensive form of entertainment but without a purchased special license it is not legal (even if shown by an advisor who is a faculty member). The SLP staff can provide recommendations of companies who provide the license to show the movie however, the organization must have the funding to pay for the license.
Students must fill out the Release of Liability Waiver form each time they engage in an event that could have increased physical risk. Examples include: hiking, playing sports, dancing, etc. Members of Sports Clubs or other organizations that involve regular physical activity are required to complete this as part of the renewal process.
Students should never sign a contract for their organization/the University. All contracts must be submitted to so that we may ensure the contract is signed by appropriate University personnel and protects the organization members and University from liability. Please allow approximately 3 weeks to process contracts. Students should never make any verbal or written agreements with outside entities until receiving approval from University. For instance, if a student organization wishes to assist with the implementation of an event sponsored by an off campus entity, the organization should not make any agreements until receiving approval from the SEAL Center. Additionally, outside entities should be encouraged to work with CI Events Services to implement their event as opposed to your organization.
A variety of forms are available on the Student Leadership Programs website at organizations/club_organization_forms.htm to meet your needs. Virtually all forms are now 100% electronic (as of July 2011). organizations/club_organization_forms.htm Whereas student organizations on other campuses often have to work with offices across campus to have their needs met, the SLP submits requests to campus entities on behalf of student organizations.
