Outreach SHAC gathers and reviews information about students’ satisfaction with the Ashe Center and about problems students encounter in obtaining care or using the Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP). To do this, SHAC reviews anonymous copies of comment cards submitted to the Ashe Center as well as other student satisfaction comments submitted by other means. SHAC also participates in information fairs and works with other student groups such as the Student Health Advocates (SHAs), Student Welfare Commission (SWC), Graduate Student Association (GSA) and Undergraduate Student Association Council (USAC). We also host quarterly town halls for the entire student body. Student Insurance Review SHAC is part of the committee that reviews the Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) including medical, behavioral health, dental, and vision coverage. In this role, SHAC makes recommendations about how to balance requests for new benefits and maintain affordable health plan costs for students. Get Involved! SHAC meetings are open to all students, so please contact us by email if you would like to attend our next meeting.
