Overview of Faculty/Staff Advisor Roles & Responsibilities
EDUCATION CODE
SECTION 76060-76067
The Foothill College Student Affairs &Activities Department welcomes faculty/staff advisors. You were selected by your student
leaders to serve them and the organization as a mentor and guide. This is an honor and an experience we hope that you will
enjoy. The Student Activities Ofce appreciates the work you do to support student leadership on campus and are available to
you throughout the year. The role of an advisor varies, but it is always an important one. The advisor is a non-voting member and
serves in an advisory role. The scope of the student organizations activities, the effectiveness of ofcers, the time commitments of
the advisor and several other factors determine the level of involvement the advisor will have with the student organization. The
Advisor serves as a liaison between the college and the students. The advising experience can be very rewarding and advisors can
have a lasting impression on students.
There may be some concerns regarding liability and your role as the advisor to a student organization. As an advisor and
employee, one is not to act outside of the scope of his/her employment. At no time should actions occur that would be considered
as behavior that is inconsistent with your role as an ofcial representative of the college. While the inuence of the advisor
is necessary and valuable, they are not responsible for the actions of the individual members or the organization as a whole.
Considering expertise and experience, the faculty/staff advisor can often provide signicant insights regarding student
organization issues. For example, conict resolution, goal setting, feedback, program ideas, continuity and advocacy. A very
important contribution is advising about organizational and interpersonal effectiveness, communication, and personal growth. It
is through the aid of the advisors that individual students develop their true potential as leaders.
The advisor should assist the student organization to adhere to all FHDA policies, as well as federal and state law. Student
organization programming/events may require custodial, audio visual or safety and security cost for event planning. The Student
Activities Specialist/ICC Advisor is the designee who can respond to questions concerning the interpretation or application of
policies and regulations. The faculty/staff advisor is encouraged to contact the Student Activities Specialist with any questions or
concerns.
76060. The governing board of a community college district may authorize the students of a college to organize a student
body association. The association shall encourage students to participate in the governance of the college and may conduct
any activities, including fundraising activities, as may be approved by the appropriate college ofcials. The association may be
granted the use of community college premises and properties without charge, subject to any regulations that may be established
by the governing board of the community college district.
BENEFITS OF BEING AN ADVISOR
• PGA/PAA Hours for staff/faculty
• Developing a mentoring/teaching relationship with students
• Facilitating the growth and development of student leaders
• Establishing networks with peers/colleagues serving in similar capacities
• Continued historical growth related to cultural, social, religious, educational and political changes of
student organizations
A FEW TIPS FOR SUCCESS
• Since you are required to be present for the club to receive free facilities rentals and for club votes, it is very
important to be present for the brainstorming also.
• Set expectations: meet with leaders from the organization early in the academic quarter and discuss mutual
expectations that the leaders would like from the advisor and vice versa. Remember that organizations are
for the students, the role of the advisor is to advise in their decisions and assist them in their organizational
development.
Page 8
Revised January 2020
• Quality vs. Quantity: It is very important to have a presence with students, but it is more valuable to have
meaningful interactions and relationships with students. Clubs are not required to meet weekly and it is
sometimes not necessary unless they need to conduct paperwork and discuss business. You being at their
meeting makes it ofcial.
• Motivation: sometimes students will burn out and lack the motivation to continue to work for the
organizations success. Advisors can help determine what will motivate the students (i.e., recognition,
achievement, empowerment).
EXTENDED ABSENCES & RESIGNATION
• Extended absences: when advisors will be on extended absences from campus (sabbatical, leave of absence,
emergency leave of absence, etc.), an alternate advisor must be identied. This change should be reported to
ICC as soon as possible via the Advisors Responsibilities Agreement Form.
• Resignation: due to a number of factors (retirement, time constraints, difference of ideology, etc.), there may
come a time when advisors, organizations or both parties determine that another advisor would better serve
the organization. Once this decision has been made, it is important to have a discussion with the leadership of
the organization regarding any change.
AN ADVISOR CAN BE A…
Mentor:
Mentors have the responsibility of creating a one-on-one learning relationship based on modeling behavior and an
extended, shared dialogue. Students may look to mentors for advice regarding their career, activities, or personal
goals. Good mentors exhibit enthusiasm, genuine interest, understanding, and an honest rapport, along with the desire
to stimulate and expose others to new experiences.
Team Builder:
Team Builders work with their new ofcers to establish relationships that will enhance the ability of the organizations
leadership and members to work together. A team builder facilitates an environment in which he/she assists students in
understanding their strengths, weaknesses, work styles, and goals
Motivator:
Motivators are aware of their students’ needs, wants, desires, and impulses. You can motivate students through
recognizing their efforts, appealing to their desire to create change, and connecting their experiences at Foothill to the
experiences they will have in the community.
Mediator:
Conflict mediators work with students to resolve any conflict within the group or other college party. Successful
mediators only get involved wh
en students cannot resolve their issues on their own. It is important to remain as
impartial as possible so as not to show a bias toward any one student within the organization. The ultimate goal is to
reach a win-win situation for the students and the organization.
Policy Interpreter:
A policy interpreter must adhere to policies and rules for clubs. Advisors are asked to familiarize themselves with this
document so that they can assist students in their understanding of how to work within college parameters. Being able
to interpret policies and rules to the students is extremely valuable.
Reective Agent:
Reective agents encourage their students to engage in activities that contribute to each individual student’s ability
to make meaning of his/her own experiences. Reective agents ask probing and honest questions to challenge their
students to really learn about themselves and the world around them. Remember to have students reect on their
successes and failures.

Section 1: Objectives
The establishment of ICC Finance Code is to further
enforce the policies and procedures for the approval,
expenditures, and development of all funds under the
control of the Inter Club Council. The code ensures
that students of Foothill College experience the full
range of benets provided through organization
activities. The code will also ensure that all nancial
decisions and transactions made by the Inter Club
Council are in the best interest of its constituents. All
pertinent federal, state, county, and district nancial
regulations are taken into consideration in the
process of code establishment.
Section 2: Starting Funds
Clubs can use funds received from ICC for activities
or events on campus.
A. A new Club is eligible to obtain $50 Seed Money
for the first time the club becomes active. All
organizations are eligible to obtain $200 annual grant,
and up to $500 or $1000 Special Activities Fund or
Organizations Project Fund once during an academic
year. To obtain the $500/$1000, additional
documentation is needed. In order to receive the
annual grant, Clubs need to fill out the Fund Request
form & submit it to the ICC Board/Advisor, or put it
in the red box by the ICC cubicle before Monday at 3
p.m. The $50 Seed Money will automatically be
deposited into the newly founded Club account. This
can happen if the Club opened their account with the
Student Accounts Office.
B. An organization must be present at roll call at the
Inter Club Council meeting in order to request funds
from Inter Club Council or their funds may be
denied.
C. After the board approves an organization’s
request for funds, the ICC Finance Director will
give the Students Accounts Manager ICC minutes
and then students can submit the completed form
(indicating the amount of money transferred, the
recommended vendor, and the source of funding)
along with the organization's minutes and receipt
originals as a supporting document.
Section 3: Deposits
A. All cash & checks collected need to be submitted
with supporting documents & the appropriate
signatures of the club's advisor, club ofcer, and

funds to the bookstore. All funds must be deposited
to the Foothill Bookstore immediately after following
the activity by the club treasurer and advisor.
B. Income of events must be deposited into the
organization's account before the organization pays
any expense charges (for more detail, see Article
V). The direct payment of expenses of an event
(food services, decoration expenses, etc.) may not be
funded from the income of the event.
C. All funds generated by a host organization
through events or activities must be deposited
immediately into the organization’s account. If the
Students Accounts Manager is not available at the
time (night-time, for example), the organization must
leave the funds generated with the advisor. As soon
as the Students Accounts Manager is available, the
ICC Finance Director is responsible for retrieving
the funds from the advisor, and contacting the
Students Accounts Manager to arrange a deposit of
the funds.

organization’s account (either in the form of cash/
check) will be the responsibility of the advisor,

the Inter Club Council's regular meetings. According
to Inter Club Council Bylaws, the organization goes
into a state of probation after three (3) Inter Club
Council meeting absences; after four (4) consecutive
meeting absences the club goes into an automatic state
of suspension. The Inter Club Council Secretary will
keep track of the clubs absences and report to the entire
board. The ICC Secretary will also be responsible for
notifying the organizations advisor(s)/ofcer(s) (in
both written and verbal form) of their clubs status
both after the rst three (3) absences, and after the
fourth (4) absence. The ICC Secretary must also
notify the club's advisor/ofcer(s) of what will happen
to the organization’s funds if the club continues to be
unrepresentative for a period of sixteen (16) quarters or
more. (Notify the advisor and/or organization ofcer(s)
of the Section 9 B-C).
B. If the organization is not represented in these ICC
meetings for a period of sixteen (16) consecutive
quarters (including summer quarters) or longer, the
organization’s funds will then be transferred into
the ICC organizations project fund account. Note:
Section 3 must be implemented before any of the
organization’s funds are transferred. Note: during the
sixteen (16) quarters of the organization’s inactivity/
hibernation, the Inter Club Council Executive Board
will ensure that the club does not use the funds in
their account.
C. In order to effectively implement Section 2,
the ICC Executive Board will review the status of
organization annually.
1. All active organizations must be represented at the
Inter Club Council’s regular meetings as dened in
Inter Club Council Bylaws Section 5. Organizations
that are either in violation of this section or request
voluntary hibernation will be placed in states of
probation or hibernation in accordance with ASFC
Inter Club Council Bylaws Section 6. Notication
of Probation or Hibernation status will be made by
the ICC Secretary and Student Activities Specialist
in both written and verbal form to the organization
ofcer(s) and advisor.
2. If an organization in voluntary or involuntary
hibernation is not represented at ICC regular
meetings for a period of 16 consecutive quarters
(including Summer Quarters) or more, the
organization will be considered for Permanent
Hibernation. All Permanent Hibernation
organization’s funds are transferred into the
ICC Special Projects SP07 (or equivalent)
account.
3. In order to effectively implement the actions of Section
10B, the Inter Club Council's Executive Board and
Student Accounts Manager will review the status of all
(active and inactive) clubs and organization accounts
after the 4th week of each Fall Quarter. Notication
of pending Permanent Hibernation Status, including
reference to the possible transfer of organization funds to
the ICC Special Projects SP07 (or equivalent) account,
will be delivered verbally and in writing to the last
known Faculty Advisor and/or organization ofcer(s).
If an organization ofcer or advisor does respond within
30 days to this notication and announces intent to
reactivate said organization to the Executive Board,
the Inter Club Council will allow the organization 2
quarters to complete the reactivation process. If there is
no response within 30 days, if the reactivation process
is not completed, or if the response from the Club's
Advisor and/or the Club's President is to proceed with
Permanent Hibernation, the Inter Club Council must
publish a nal announcement of Permanent Hibernation
in the school's newspaper (if one exists), website, and
Inter Club Council Bulletin Board. If there is no further
response from the campus
Page 20
Revised January 2020
ICC Handbook
community to the Inter Club Council Executive
Board after 30 days then the transfer of permanent
hibernation organization funds to the ICC Special
Projects SP07 (or equivalent) account will be made
by the Student Accounts Manager as directed by a
vote by the Inter Club Council.
4. An organization that has been put into Permanent
Hibernation status can reactivate its organization.
However, after the transfer of funds mentioned
in item four (4), the Club needs to clarify what
will happen to their funds. They can receive $50
of seed money and $200 of grant money. The
organization may not reclaim their “old” funds when
it reactivates.
Section 10: Stipulations
The Inter Club Council Executive Board reserves
the right, with the consent of the board and the
advisor, to discuss any exceptions or violations of
the rules and regulations mentioned above and take
appropriate actions.

Plan & Host an Activity

receive assistance in planning, secure a location, and
promote events.
There are two ways to participate in events, you can
hold your own or co-sponsor another event.
Hosting an Event
Club members decide and vote on the event and
develop a budget with the advisor present. Advisor is
required to attend the entire event.

Specialist for event logistics and marketing.
Members meet with the Student Accounts
Manager to review the nancial aspects of the event.

club will use the "Funds Request" form. No "Event
Petition" is required, only club minutes. Many clubs
enjoy setting up booths at department events, helping
non-clubs with events and use/agree to that during
their club meeting, not ICC.
