Every recognized organization on campus is required to have a JMU Faculty/Staff advisor per Advisor Policy 1301. This person must be either a full-or part-time employee of the university and cannot be a graduate student.
If an advisor steps down or an organization removes an advisor following the procedures in the organization’s constitution, there are two options:
- The organization can find another faculty or staff member interested in taking on the responsibilities that follows the procedures in the organization’s constitution regarding advisors.
- If there is difficulty finding a new advisor, you can email Jessica Weed (email@example.com) and she will try to help you find a new one. Student Activities & Involvement has a list of faculty and staff members who are willing to be advisors for organizations.
Once a new advisor is found, Student Activities & Involvement asks that the new advisor fills out the online Advisor Confirmation Form so we have their information on file. The new advisor should also be added to the organization’s BeInvolved page as the Faculty/Staff advisor by a listed exec member on their roster.
