Welcome to the SLIS Student Advisory Committee.
We are students elected each Fall by the SLIS student body to serve a one-year term. SAC members are composed of students from both LIS and Book Arts, including one distance education student and one doctoral student.
SAC is registered with the university as a student organization and operates under a constitution.
Our purpose within SLIS is:
• to represent the interests of the students and convey them to the SLIS Director, faculty, staff, and alumni
• to organize or coordinate events, trips, or changes in SLIS which will help the widest possible portion of the students
• to conduct fundraising activities and events which promote the entire SLIS
We also serve as peer counselors. This means that should you have a question or concern about the program, you may talk to us and we will be glad to give you advice and help you the best we can. Having been in SLIS and taken many of the classes offered, we have much wisdom to offer!
