Roles (User Role)
The User Role will define what type of user they will be along with what permissions they will inherit. Users can belong to multiple Roles if necessary. For example, a student can belong to both the Student and Tutor roles at the same time. They will inherit the permissions from both user roles.
These options are used to provide additional permissions to a specific user beyond the access they inherit from their user role. For example, you can give a specific advisor Super User Access without giving all advisors this kind of access.
