The Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB) is comprised of undergraduate and graduate students, Deans of Students, and SHCS Leadership. Its purpose is to work collaboratively on issues concerning university student health, counseling, wellness, and insurance. Every third year SHAB will give particular attention to reviewing the insurance plan options for the University Student Health Insurance Plan (U-SHIP). The board will meet 2-3 times each quarter during the academic year. Students on the board will be expected to solicit and report student feedback on insurance and SHCS with the intent of informing the development of the SHCS Strategic Plan and wellness programming. SHAB students will also be ambassadors to the student body to deliver messages that the committee feels are important.

The Student Health Advisory Board is made up of SHCS staff, students and campus partners. In 2013 the advisory board was reconfigured to this layout to better assist the student population. The students on the board reflect the population of the student body with 1/3 undergrad and 2/3 graduate students. Please click on the previous years to view members and accomplishments.
SHAB has 3 subcommittees that focus on communication, education, communication, and patient feedback.
The Patient Feedback Subcommittee will develop a survey and focus group questions with the purpose of assessing student perceptions of SHCS services and programs. It will be useful to collect data from those who have used one or more of the SHCS services and programs as well as those who have not used the service or attended programs.
Following data collection, the Patient Feedback Subcommittee will make recommendations to the Student Health Advisory Board (SHAB) and the Student Health and Counseling Services leadership regarding their strategies to change perception of users and non-users to match true patient experiences.
