Earn PGA/PAA Credits
There are on-going, year-round Campus Service opportunities (PAA only for faculty and PGA for classified staff).
Planning committees recruit and start meeting in Summer Session and Fall Quarter and meet weekly for an average of 6 months to year-round. Each month has a planning committee made up of students, faculty, staff and administrators who organize exciting events for the education, empowerment, enjoyment and entertainment of the campus and community.
Mentor a student or group at the Research & Service Leadership Symposium
Staff and faculty can earn PGA/PAA credit for mentoring a student or group of students at the Research & Service Leadership Symposium.
Earn hourly credit. Download the PGA Committee Form and track your hours as a mentor.
Faculty can track the hours they spend as an RSLS mentor and earn up to 18 hours of credit (1 unit of PGA). After the conclusion of the symposium each year, you can access your certificate in the Vision Resource Center (via MyPortal). Contact Carolyn Holcroft for help accessing your certificate.

Become a club advisor
Club Advisors are required for a Club to exist. Club Advisors sign up committing to be present at official club meetings, events and to sign on the account. Most Clubs meet weekly, not during Summer. Foothill typically has 50 per quarter that include Academic, Athletic, Departmental, Political, Recreational, Religious, Social and Special Interest.
