HONORS STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE

The Honors College has an official voice for students of which you should be aware: the Honors Student Advisory Committee (HSAC). This group works towards connecting students with faculty and staff to foster communication, influence Honors College policy, and take action items related to a host of the academic and social opportunities in the Honors College. HSAC meets twice a month on Mondays from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Please contact HSAC@honors.utah.edu for more information. You may also contact Dominic Walker-Pecoraro (D.Walker-Pecoraro@Honors.Utah.Edu), the HSAC advisor with questions.
