Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)
This group is composed of student volunteers that serve as an advisory board to the Director of the Student Health and Counseling Center. It is their responsibility to oversee the facility's operations and ensure that the student health needs are consistently being met. By engaging in conversation, and polling Fresno State students, SHAC acts as the "student voice" for the Health Center. The goal is to make sure our services are accessible and relevant to the needs of Fresno State students. The group meets regularly and welcomes new members interested in creating change. Open to all majors.  SHAC meets monthly and is always seeking new student members.
