The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) acts as a student voice to the University Health Center staff and administration.
SHAC members are available to listen to your comments, suggestions, complaints, or compliments about the University Health Center. SHAC also monitors and regularly reports on the University Health Center’s on-going American College Health Association Patient Satisfaction and Assessment Survey. SHAC works closely with the Director of the University Health Center to help resolve any complaints. Aside from their liaison duties, SHAC gets involved in some outreach programming to support campus wellbeing.
SHAC members participate in a variety of UHC committees and plan health related events for the campus community. In addition, SHAC members participate in outreach activities and programming such as the First Look Fair and Maryland Day.
SHAC meets weekly on Wednesdays from 5-6 PM. For the Fall 2021 semester, we are planning to meet in person.
We encourage non-members to attend our open meetings and voice concerns, provide feedback, and observe the work that we're doing. If you're interested in attending one of our open meetings, please email us at email@example.com for more information.
