Substitute Advisors

If a primary advisor is unavailable to attend an off-campus or overnight event, one or more substitute advisors may attend in his or her place with appropriate notice to and approval from the Department of Student Activities. Substitute advisors may be current Baylor faculty or staff with sufficient knowledge and experience serving in an advisory role. Graduate students who have fully completed all undergraduate requirements and who work within a university department that has a formal relationship with a specific student organization may also qualify to serve as a substitute advisor. All substitute advisors must also complete appropriate training prior to the event as delivered by the Department of Student Activities. Appropriate notification includes submitting a written request of the intent to have a substitute advisor 48 hours prior to the event and appropriate approval is the receipt of a written response from the Department approving the request.
