New Advisor Onboarding

Congratulations on matching with a Northwestern registered student organization and thank you for serving our students. Below is a series of topics including required next steps to get started in your role as well as information and resources.

Next Steps

Please contact to directly notify our office that the group no longer needs a faculty/staff advisor.

Next, please connect with a student contact in the group you advise and ask that the student:

  • Invite you to their group's Wildcat Connection page's roster as 'Advisor.'
  • Update the group's Wildcat Connection page's About Us section to include your contact information.
  • Bring a SOFO Change of Advisor form for you to sign in to the SOFO account (and ideally with the outgoing advisor already signed as leaving the account access).
  • Bring an Advisor Acknowledgement form for you to review, initial, and sign.
  • Invite you to any group Listserv, collaborative folder, or other communication group appropriate for the advisor to be involved in (especially where meeting minutes are shared).
