Student Honors Advisory Council


The Student Honors Advisory Council (SHAC) is a student-run organization of which everyone in the University Honors Program is a member. SHAC’s purpose is to:

  • Advise the University Honors Program Administrators and the Honors Advisory Council (HAC).
  • Assist in the planning and execution of select Honors academic events, socials, recruitment, mentoring, service projects, etc.
  • Promote community and foster peer-support among Honors students.
  • Promote the visibility of the University Honors Program on the LMU campus.
  • Strengthen affinity and networking of Honors alumni with the Honors Program.
  • Develop sophisticated and cosmopolitan scholars, artists, and leaders.

Every Honors student is automatically a part of SHAC. It is up to you as an Honors student to contribute ideas for programs and to see them through, but you will have plenty of help in doing so. SHAC e-board is a group of elected representatives from every cohort of the student body who are instrumental in helping plan Honors intellectual and social events, advise Honors leadership, and maintain a close student community. Elections for SHAC e-board are held once per year.
