Student Advisory Council

The Student Advisory Council (SAC) was created to establish a dialogue between student leaders from every public college and university in Massachusetts and the Board of Higher Education.

SAC meetings are typically held once a month during the academic year at centrally located campuses. Voting membership is extended to all Student Trustees and Student Government Association (Student Senate) Presidents at every community college, state university, and each University of Massachusetts campus; however, all students are welcome and are encouraged to participate.
