  • Are most advisors appointed officers of the University?

    I am the SGA advisor for a branch campus of a larger university. This semester, there has been a push by the President and the Office of Student Affairs to:

    1. To forcibly combine the main campus SGA with our SGA.
    2. Appoint the advisor from student affairs. (note, the SGA advisor on our main campus is the Assoc. Dean for Student Affairs and is appointed. On our campus, the advisor is nominated and serves at the will of the elected SGA.).

    One argument that is being made is that "most SGA advisors" are appointed officers of the University. My question is do you have any data to confirm or refute this statement?

  • Are there advisors who only advise SG? (1 of 2 answers): Yes, and sometimes more than one

    Have you done any research on Student Government advisors? I'm specifically looking for information regarding SG advisors who are hired specifically to advise only SG– they don't have other responsibilities. Do you know of any institutions that have that set up? I also wonder if there is info on advisors that have SG as part of their responsibilities. Specifically, what are those other responsibilities? Do you have info on this topic?

  • Ask the Experts - 2006.09.20 - WSU question about overbearing advisor

    My alma matter is having some real problems with an advisor who tells them how their financial matters will work in a manner that is inappropriate. Do any of you have any good language that includes some poignant comments about advisors who cross the line? His quote to them was “We can do this one of two ways, my way, or my way.” Not cool. I’d really appreciate your comments...
     

     

  • Ask the Experts - 2008.04.02 - Does the SG advisor have the right to override or veto a motion passed by SG leaders?

    My question has to do with the Advisor having the ability to veto or override a motion that has been voted on by the members. At our previous meeting we voted to postpone working on the a proposal a program until we could get better figures for the number of students who actually use the service. Our advisor was out and a leave and has returned and now is demanding to override or veto the motion that we have made to at least determine the actual number of students and also allow us to meet with administrators from the district office planning and instutiional effectiveness to review the proposal.

    Does the advisor have the right to veto or override a motion and demand that we submit the proposal for a charge in which she was given by the administration?

    In addition, this project that we are working on was never voted on by the Joint Student Council to undertake.

    Do we have to submit a proposal if we have never voted to undertake this project? It was more less told to us that we needed to partake in this project because the administrators were meeting the following week to discuss this matter.

    Finally, is student involvement allowed in the negotiations with the administrators with an outside company to determine the best interest for the students?
