Collegiate sections have access to a wealth of support from professional SWE members who have volunteered for one of three positions: Faculty Advisor, Professional Counselor, and SWE Leadership Coach. Each of these positions is dedicated to supporting and mentoring collegiate section leaders and members.
Having several support options from different parts of the SWE professional community can be confusing for collegiate section leaders. Therefore, the infographic below has been developed to help all SWE members understand the differences and similarities of these three positions. The LCC along with the Professional Counselor/Faculty Advisor Coordinator put a lot of work into creating the content for this infographic. A pdf version of it can be found here.
In the end, all three of these positions are dedicated to helping collegiate sections achieve their goals and to providing guidance in the smooth transition of collegiate members to the professional world. With collaboration and each position filling the intended role, a collegiate section can feel fully supported and have the resources it needs to be successful.
