Student Health Advisory Committee

Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) members bridge the gap between UO students and University Health Services. They promote public health policies and organize events and outreach to meaningfully connect University Health Services with UO students. Members take on a number of responsibilities while in SHAC:

  • Promoting a diverse and healthy campus culture
  • Advising the health services executive leadership
  • Participating in community action projects, events, and outreach
  • Representing the student body

Throughout the years, SHAC has helped launch the smoke-free campus policy, developed tours for the University Health Services building, worked to implement a wellness vending machine into the EMU, and much more! Currently SHAC is working on projects around health equity, outreach, supporting students in isolation and quarantine due to COVID, and campaigning for free menstrual products on campus. This organization is a great way for students to meet like-minded individuals, grow as leaders, and make a lasting impact on campus.

SHAC meets regularly during the academic year. Currently meetings take place virtually on Tuesdays from 4:00–5:00 p.m. If you are interested in attending, email for the Zoom link.

Recruitment for new members occurs each term (applications are open weeks 3–7), but guests are strongly encouraged to come and participate at any point throughout the term or year.

The SHAC application for winter 2021 is due on Friday, February 19, at 11:59 p.m.
