Accomplishments

  • One of SHAC’s greatest accomplishments took place as a result of the budget crisis that shook California in the 1990’s. At that time, SSU nearly eliminated funding for Health Center services to students. SHAC helped craft and support a cost effective per-semester fee mechanism that preserved health services for students at SSU and indirectly throughout the CSU system.Giving feedback about student perceptions of Student Health Center operations and about campus health issues.
  • Suggesting topics for the Student Health Center to review; training, website updates/marketing and access to information
  • Surveying students about health issues such as campus smoking policy, etc.
