VI.K. FACULTY INVOLVEMENT IN STUDENT LIFE
Faculty members are called upon to take part in the life of the campus as advisors with the many
and varied campus organizations and as participants in as many scheduled activities as possible.
To be properly recognized, campus organizations must complete the necessary registration in the
Office of Student Affairs. Each student organization is required to have an advisor who assumes
appropriate responsibilities.
The Student Government Association, other related committees, organizations, and the Office of
Student Affairs cooperate to provide a well-balanced program of social functions, programs, and
activities. Faculty members, when called upon to assist groups, provide excellent insight and can
usually provide the assistance necessary to make student life a real part of the learning process.
Weekly campus bulletins from the Communications Office provide Faculty and Staff with
complete listing of all scheduled activities during the week. Other communication is handled
through e-mail, voice mail,
