Honors Students Advisory Committee

The Honors Student Advisory Committee (SAC) was initiated by Director Patricia Hart in 2008. This committee consists of Honors Program members who volunteer to participate and collaborate with the University Honors Program director and staff to implement activities for development and enhancement of all Honors students’ academic and intellectual opportunities. In addition, the committee will assist the Honors leadership in setting vision and perspectives for the Program.
