Greek Academic Advisors

UW-W employees serve as advisors to Whitewater's 170+ student organizations and clubs. They are full time employees of the institution that have agreed to serve in this volunteer capacity. Each year confirmation of their position is sent from the Assistant Chancellor for Student Affairs to formalize their commitment and coverage.

Greek Academic Advisors are volunteer UW-W faculty and staff. They serve as the primary connector between the academic mission of the University and the Chapter. They assist and advise the Chapter in ways to improve their academic performance and achievement. The Academic Advisor was previously known at the Campus Advisor that every student organization is required to have.

Without the service of these individuals the quality of the student experience would be much less. Career & Leadership Development is very thankful for their time and efforts.

Individuals interested in assisting the Group Community in this role should contact Career & Leadership Development at 262-472-1471.

Expectations of Greek Academic Advisors

  1. Provide linkage between University and the Chapter.
  2. Meet with organizational leadership regularly to create and implement academic assistance efforts.
  3. Provide general guidance and advisement of students in their efforts.
  4. Be familiar with University policies, procedures, and resources.
  5. Empower students to organize and run their chapter and to foster academic progress and achievement.
