About the Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is an organization comprised of caring and energetic students from various academic backgrounds and campus-community involvements. Since the Student Health and Counseling Center (SHCC) is funded mostly by student fees, the primary purpose of the organization is to provide a student voice in health center operations, promote a positive and open channel of communication between SHCC staff and the student body, and to contribute additional awareness of student issues and how to better serve the health needs of students at CSUF.

Meetings are held monthly during the academic year from 12-1pm in the Student Health and Counseling Center, Main Conference Room, Room 113.
