ASGA Supports SG Advisors.

ASGA-Member-Logo-Bronze_150pASGA appreciates the important role advisors play in helping create effective and influential Student Governments across the nation. A competent and committed advisor often can be the difference between a truly effective and influential SG and one that is floundering without direction, purpose, or influence.

ASGA also understands that much is asked and required of advisors, and often these additional responsibilities and time commitments come with little personal or financial gain.

ASGA is here for you as an advisor.

Ask the Advisors

Get advice from some of the nation's greatest SG experts and advisors.

Advising a Student Government is a challenging, and often underappreciated and uncompensated, undertaking. And most advisors come into their positions with little to no experience.

Need help in understanding your role? Need advice on how to better serve your SG and its members?

ASGA has recruited some former Student Government leaders, current advisors, and student affairs professionals who are the nation’s best and are committed to helping you answer any SG advisor questions you may be having, such as:

  • What is the typical workload of an SG advisor?
  • Should I, as advisor, be expected to sit in on every SG meeting and attend every event?
  • Is it common for SG advisors to be compensated above and beyond their regular pay?
  • Are there any national standards for how SG advisors should interact with their groups and members?
  • Is it common to have a full-time SG advisor?
  • Are there any schools that have multiple SG advisors?

All ASGA members get regular access to “pro-bono” advice from veteran advisors who are adept in SG-related issues.

Members can ask a question to the advisors panel, and one or more of the panelists will respond within 48 hours.
