Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is a committee of students, staff, and faculty that advise the University on the delivery of health programs and services on campus with the goal of enhancing student health and wellness. The SHAC members include students, staff from the student health service fee-funded units, one faculty member, a designee of the Vice President of SAEM, and the three student health service fee-funded Directors (who are non-voting members).  


Student members will have the opportunity to make policy recommendations that help ensure SF State student health and wellness services support academic success, review and make recommendations on the Student Health Services Fee budget and recommend policy that promotes equitable and fair access to health programs.
