  • to support the staff of Lafene Health Center in their development of adequate services for fee-paying students.
  • to promote health care and the services offered by Lafene Health Center.
  • to communicate and cooperate with the Student Governing Association regarding issues of student health care on campus.
  • to increase student awareness of resources available on campus.
  • to ensure student access to updated health education materials.
Members of SHAC include:
