Group Pic


The Student Affairs Committee (SAC) has existed since 1986. The primary function of the committee is to advise the Dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences of any student problems or needs, to recommend policy or suggest courses of action, and to suggest improvements to the College. The students that participate in the Student Affairs Committee are the liaisons between the department/school, the students, and the Dean's Office. The Committee discusses issues of concern brought to the committee by the students-at-large or by committee members themselves.

Be informed and be involved:

If you would like answers to your questions, please contact the representative of your department or school. If you want to be more involved with the College of Health and Human Sciences, please contact the chair or director of your department or school.


The Student Affairs Committee meets once a month on a Tuesday, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., in MacQuarrie Hall, Room 438A.
