Resources for Club and Organization Advisors

Your role as student organization advisor is essential to the success of WP's clubs and organizations and the students who run them.  WP students who are involved in a club or organization are retained at significantly higher percentages than those who are not involved. Advising an organization can be a rewarding experience in which you are able to serve and engage students in a new context. As an advisor, you provide guidance, direction, support, and continuity to both the members and officers of the organization. The personal connections you make with students involved in these organizations, especially for first year students, helps provide various resources and support and often enhances their overall success at WP.
