Advising a Mortar Board chapter is a unique experience that allows advisors to work with the best and the brightest seniors on your campus to fulfill the Ideals of leadership, scholarship and service.
The collegiate section of the website contains helpful resources to ensure a chapter's success, including membership selection, Reading is Leading, report details and due dates, resources and sections.
In most cases, Mortar Board members spend one year as a member then graduate. The constant turnover of membership means that while newly-selected members may bring experience to the organization, they likely have little knowledge of the functions of Mortar Board. Therefore, advisors can provide consistency from one year to the next. Keys to success are active interest and participation. Additionally, experience, knowledge of the institution, familiarity with the community and commitment to education are great qualities found in advisors.
