Honors Student Advisory Council

About the Council

The council was created in 2019 to give students a voice in the development and governance of the Honors Program.  HSAC members should come from all colleges and class years and truly represent their peers in the Honors Program.  Students apply for a one-year term (renewable for a second year) in the spring semester.  Meetings will occur at least once each semester.
