Mission

The mission of the Student Advisory Council is to support the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs’s strategic plan, Thinking 2024, which helps to develop and empower students to be engaged and responsible contributors in their campus, local, and global communities. The Student Advisory Council will advise the Division's leadership to create transformative and inclusive opportunities for students through experiences and services in an equitable and welcoming environment. 

Council Membership

  • The meetings are hosted by the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs who requests feedback, views, and recommendations from a variety of student members who represent the varied colleges, organizations, and students on campus.  The primary purpose of the group is to make suggestions on ways to increase student learning and improve student life at Augusta University. 
  • This group will discuss issues and suggestions relating to student life and engagement, including programming, services, policies, and other university initiatives. Members will serve as trusted advisors to the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs and will be well-informed on issues at the university.  Members are expected to share the information with the student-body at large to elicit campus-wide student opinion. 
  • The members of the council will be selected based upon their application materials. Our goal is to select a diverse group students from various colleges and majors. Forty applicants in total will be selected to serve on this council. Each member will serve a two-year term on the council. During the first academic year, one-half of members will serve a one-year term.
