SHAC Mission

SHAC team on Zoom call

The mission of the Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is to serve as a student organization for individuals interested in promoting health related issues on campus and to identify and represent all groups of the student body. SHAC is composed of interested students that volunteer their time and work as liaisons between the student body and the Student Health Center to better respond to student needs.

What is SHAC?

SHAC fulfills Executive Order 943 from the  Chancellor’s Office. SHAC members serve as an advisory committee to the Student Health Center on the scope of service, delivery, funding, and other critical issues relating to campus health services. Students constitute the majority of the membership and the committee may include faculty, administrator, and staff members. There should be a representative from the Student Health Center. A student chairs the committee.
