Opportunities to help students.

Make a positive difference!

As an AP staff member, you have opportunity to help students directly, even if you’re not their professor. In fact, a lot of the most meaningful things that help students during their academic careers don’t even happen in the classroom. Here are a few options!

Registered Student Organization advisor volunteers needed

With more than 350 Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) on campus, Washington State University relies on many faculty, staff, and graduate students to advise these groups. Influence students outside the classroom and office by becoming a student organization advisor. All faculty, staff, and graduate students with an assistantship are eligible to become RSO advisors.

Advisors help guide organizational goals and improve the leadership skills of student members. Additional advisor responsibilities include providing ideas for activities, events and fundraisers, guiding students through university procedures, and giving input for organizational growth and development.
