Presidential Advisory Council
This advisory council will be comprised of student leaders from different backgrounds, cultures, club involvements, and academic areas to serve as student advisors to the President and Vice President. This council will meet 1-2 times a month to advise the President and Vice President on different issues, concerns, and projects in all areas of the university. The idea is to bring together student leaders from different backgrounds that can have an influence on policy creation within SA, and be a voice on behalf of their community as liaisons.
The Senate Committees are in charge of conducting research on the opinions of students relevant to submitted ideas, grievances, and suggestions.
