What the ESS Student Advisory Council does:

Student Advisory Council members consult with and advise the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Services on topics important to Western students throughout the academic year.

They do this by:

  • Meeting monthly with the Vice President and ESS staff during the academic year (no meetings during summer term).
  • Discussing ongoing and emerging topics of importance to Western students.
  • Sharing meeting discussions with peers and groups they regularly participate in across campus, bringing any feedback back to SAC meetings for discussion.

Who are  the Student Advisory Council members?

  • Fourteen students selected from applicants across Western Washington University campus locations to serve one-year appointments.
  • Selected from the application pool to represent all academic areas (majors) of the University and a diversity of student experiences from first year to graduate level.
  • All currently enrolled Western students are encouraged to apply.
