Request an Accountability Advisor

Accountability Advisors, as described on this site, do not apply in cases involving Title IX (PM-73). 

For information regarding Advisors in the Title IX process, please see page 10 of PM-73, which contains LSU’s Title IX policies. Any questions regarding Advisors in that process may contact LSU’s Title IX Coordinator.

Per Section 6.1 of the Code of Student Conduct, a student has the right to have one Advisor of his/her choice present during any accountability meeting.

Accountability Advisors are LSU faculty and staff selected and trained by Student Advocacy & Accountability on the accountability process.  

Advisors can:

  • Help students understand the accountability process and discuss available options
  • Help students prepare for meetings, formulate questions, and gather supporting documentation

Advisors cannot:

  • Act as a spokesperson for the student
  • Directly address the SAA officials, University Hearing Panelists, or Material Observers
  • Serve as a Material Observer and Advisor simultaneously

For steps on finding an advisor, please see below.

Understand your charges and your rights as a student by reviewing the Code of Student Conduct. Information about a student's right to have one Advisor can be found in Section 4.4. Students may have an Advisor of their choice present for the meeting, but it is not required and most students attend this meeting on their own. If you are unable to locate an Advisor and would like to be connected with one, please see the listing below and reach out to schedule a time to meet either in-person, phone or email.

If you cannot reach your Advisor within 2 business days, or do not receive a response within 2 business days, please contact Student Advocacy & Accountability at

Create a timeline of events leading up to your alleged charges. Students will also be asked to prepare a written statement, which may be prepared in advance.

If an Advisor will be attending the meeting, you will be asked to complete an Authorization to Release Information (FERPA) form.
