Tampa Advising Offices


Our primary work focus is to facilitate the inner workings of USF's Student Government by providing guidance, training and operational support to the current administration and employees.


The Office's mission is to develop students in their role as Student Government leaders within the broader context of serving the University of South Florida students. 


Creating adaptive, ethical environments where students aspire to change the world.


We practice a holistic, learning partnership and developmental philosophy characterized by:

  • ADVOCACY - Representing our constituents and creating opportunities for positive change.
  • INCLUSIVITY - Creating a culture of respect that celebrates and embraces diversity.
  • CIVILITY - Acting courteous, kind and professional in our interactions across contexts.


  • Provide students and staff with experiential learning opportunities and competency skills that advance their personal and professional goals, serve the needs of their constituents, and support the academic mission of the university.
  • Provide accessible advising support that addresses the goals, means, and consequences of effective and ethical decision-making by student government students.
  • Collaborate with internal and external partners to strengthen involvement and engagement opportunities for students/staff.
