The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) represents the needs and ideas of university students. Members include undergraduate, graduate and professional students who speak for student groups like the Undergraduate Student Government, Professional Student Government and Council of Graduate Students.
SHAC members advise Boynton on how to improve the health of the university community. One of its most important roles is to help develop the Student Services Fee (SSF) requests. SHAC members approve the final request and participate in fee hearings.
Student organizations and centers have worked with SHAC to voice their concerns and take action to improve campus health. Over the past few years, these actions have included: prioritizing and acquiring SSF dollars for mental health initiatives, expanding mental health services on both West and East Bank, establishing a drug disposal station in Boynton Pharmacy, and implementing the Smoke- and Tobacco-Free Campus Policy.
To inquire about joining SHAC, please contact SHAC Advisor and Boynton's Director of Public Health, Michelle Trumpy (she/her/hers) at 612-626-6738 or [email protected].
SHAC meetings will be held virtually until further notice. Fall 2022 meetings occur on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month at 12:00pm. SHAC does not meet during finals, university holidays, breaks and summer. Meetings are open.
