What is URSHAC?

University of Rochester Student Health Advisory Committee (URSHAC) is comprised of students. All students are invited to join URSHAC. URSHAC has a diverse membership with students from a variety of backgrounds, interests and majors.

URSHAC offers students the opportunity to have an impact on the health care services offered by the University Health Service (UHS). The committee, which is chaired by students, meets every two to three weeks with the Director of the University Health Service.

Students are encouraged to share ideas, discuss topics of concern, and offer suggestions for improving services offered by UHS. Members provide feedback on changes being considered by UHS. URSHAC also co-sponsors health-related events with the UHS Health Promotion Office and student groups.
