Student Advisory Committee (SAC)

Student Advisory Committee (SAC) members serve as student ambassadors for the Swearer Center for Public Service within the campus community. The SAC meets regularly throughout the academic year to advise the Director of the Swearer Center on important issues related to the center's mission and strategy. SAC members serve one-year terms but may serve consecutive years if renominated and reappointed. Meet our current members below!

Applications for the Student Advisory Committee will be accepted through Jan. 29, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Apply here.
