Student Advisory Committee

The Student Advisory Committee to the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs (VCSAC) offers an exceptional opportunity for interested UC Berkeley students to provide counsel to Vice Chancellor Steve Sutton concerning the quality of student life and the co-curricular experience. Students serving on the VCSAC will provide direct advice and feedback to the Student Affairs division on the campus administration and help influence decisions concerning student services at Cal. Membership on the committee varies from 12-15 members depending upon the application pool of a given year.

Students that are on the committee have the opportunity to interact monthly with the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and also have a great way to build their resumes.



All interested Cal students who plan to be enrolled in and present on campus for both the Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 semesters are eligible. Students who are passionate about the quality of student life and the student experience at UC Berkeley, engaged in the campus community, and interested in student services and development outside of the classroom setting are encouraged to apply. We are seeking a broad representation of Cal students. Applicants must be available to attend monthly meetings on Tuesdays (usually on the second week of the month) from 5:10-7:00 p.m.
