Adviser Information 

Dan Warning, Adviser of the Year 

The President's Cabinet agrees to allow administrators to serve as club advisers for not more than five contact hours per week. Any such advising must be approved in writing by the supervisor. Administrators who have a teaching contract during a period when they also seek to work as club adviser may not exceed the five-hour per week limit in total. Thus, if the administrator were teaching a three-hour course, the limit on advising a club would be two hours.

Serving as a club adviser during the day would fall under the provision for administrators who ask to teach during the daytime. The President's Cabinet agrees to allow administrators to serve as club advisers during the day with the advanced written permission of the supervisor. The administrator should indicate how the time would be made up. Support and clerical staff need to make arrangements for club activities during work hours with their immediate supervisor. All adviser positions must be approved by the person's supervisor.

Any club adviser position that is vacant will be posted for all JJC employees to apply for.
