Meet the 2023-24 Student Advisory Council

Consisting of the Student Government presidents from the System’s nine universities, SAC provides an important link between the needs of the students on the campuses and the goals of the System. The Council members receive input, such as suggestions for improvements, from the students at each of the individual universities and share these inputs among the group. The System's student Board member acts as the Council’s spokesperson to the Board of Supervisors.
