What is SHAC?
SHAC is the Student Health Advisory Committee
The Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) is an advisory committee made up of diverse, caring and energetic students who serve to promote and ensure the quality of health care at UW-Whitewater. Because of the diversity of the student population, SHAC helps to represent an equal range of members from various backgrounds and interests. For information about how to become a member of SHAC, please call 262-472-1300 and ask to speak with Ruth Swisher or Whitney Henley.
