Faculty Advisors

The Los Angeles Section is fortunate to have eleven active student chapters within its boundaries.  The success of each of these student chapters is dependant on the Faculty and Practitioner advisors that are assigned to the student chapter. 

The faculty advisor for the student chapter is a volunteer position consisting of a member of the faculty that advises the student chapter on activities, provides guidance for working within the university, and provides leadership for the students within the student chapter.
