The Student Health Center is committed to helping students maintain good
health so they can achieve success in all areas of campus life. We rely
on our students to assist us in this endeavor and we give them the
opportunity to do so with our Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC).
The SHAC plays an integral role in facilitating student feedback and
using that feedback to advocate for the continuation and advancement of
quality health care. The SHAC meets once per month during the academic
Members of the Student Health Advisory Committee:
Will develop skills enabling them to understand and participate in
decisions concerning health care and the delivery of health care
services to the student body
Will acquire knowledge of accessing medical services, the costs of
medical care, the necessity for medical insurance, and will assist in
educating other students by sharing this knowledge
Will assist their peers in developing the skills to recognize and
engage in healthy behaviors to reduce the risk of illness and injury
Four members of the SHAC are appointed to the committee through an application.
The remaining six student members are representatives from student
government organizations. These include representatives from
undergraduate students, graduate students, and law students.
