Student Affairs Committee

Student affairs committee members participated in the Alzheimer's Walk 2019

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.
