The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is an advisory committee responding to the needs of our students and our campus community. All UCSB students are invited to attend. 

The specific functions of SHAC are to:

  • Create an organized dialogue between students and administration about student health needs
  • Provide program and service advice/consultation.
  • Advise SHS regarding insurance  and student impact.
  • Identify educational/informational needs of students.
  • Address barriers related to seeking care and provide user feedback around accessibility and ease of use.
  • Assess emerging student issues and keep SHS connected to student life and campus.
  • Give campus administrators planning advice given student needs and budget constraints.
  • Assess perception of SHS services.
  • Provide student input through additional channels such as hiring and other SHS committees.
