Student Health Advisory Committee


The student health advisory committee (SHAC) is comprised of interested students who have volunteered to work with Walker Health Center (WHC) staff to improve knowledge and awareness of the Health Center's services among SUNY Oswego students.  SHAC members help shape campus health policy, work as liaisons between students and Health Center staff, and participate in quality improvement activities.   

SHAC  is a select group of students who:

  • Work as liaisons between students and campus health staff
  • Create positive change for students and staff
  • Assist in making campus health policy
  • Aid themselves with resume and leadership building activities
  • Serve other students by their efforts
