Student Organization Advisors

Student organizations are strongly encouraged to have a faculty or staff advisor. Student organizations needing assistance in identifying an advisor can contact the Office of Student Leadership and Engagement.

The role of an advisor varies from group to group and depends on the organization’s needs and the personalities involved. It is important that the role the advisor will play in the organization is discussed and that everyone concerned has the same expectation of the advisor role. Both advisors and organizations must understand the roles and responsibilities that they hold in relation to each other and to the organization, and must be realistic and flexible when defining the advisor role.

SOC and FAC Liaisons

Each organization is assigned a liaison from the SOC. The SOC liaison serves as an additional resource for student organizations for general org-related questions and concerns, and specifically, to discuss the renewal and auditing processes. Additionally, each organization is assigned a liaison from the FAC. The FAC liaison works with each organization to answer budget-related questions and provide workshops during the budgeting period. More information about the SOC and FAC can be found on the MCSG website. Not sure who your liaison is? Contact the SOC chair at or the FAC chair at to confirm.
