The Student Health Advisory Council (SHAC) presents students' ideas and concerns regarding health care to the Health Services administration. SHAC meets once a week to advise Health Services on programs, services, budgeting, patient satisfaction, the student medical insurance plan, and selection of physicians and other key personnel. SHAC also maintains the problems and praises box located in the Health Services lobby. Selected SHAC members also have the opportunity to attend a national conference for college health professionals. Students from all majors and interests are welcome to become SHAC members.
For information regarding SHAC, including meeting times and location, call 815-753-9579.
SHAC is here for you, the student. We are the liaison between the student body and Health Services. You do not have to be a member of SHAC to let your voice be heard. SHAC surveys student satisfaction throughout the year and reports findings to Health Services Administration. In addition, SHAC "Praises and Problems" boxes are located throughout the building where students can submit their praises or problems regarding doctors, nurses, check-in service, pharmacy, or other Health Services-related services.
The SHAC office, located in the main lobby, is often staffed with SHAC members who can assist you or answer your questions. Please stop by because SHAC is here for YOU, the student.
