The Student Leaders Advisory Council (SLAC) has three purposes:
- SLAC provides advice and counsel to the Vice President for Student Affairs, Dean of Students, and campus leadership on student issues. This advice does not replace but complements formal recommendations and official action made or taken by Northern Iowa Student Government. A portion of meeting time is devoted to providing feedback on ideas, input into decision making, or raising issues to be addressed.
- SLAC serves as a vehicle for information sharing and support between and among key student leaders on campus. A portion of meeting time is devoted to discussion of concerns, topics, and ideas generated by members of the group. This includes sharing practical information about events and plans, as well as discussing topics of common concern to student leaders.
- SLAC provides a mechanism for continuing professional and leadership development of its members. A portion of meeting time is devoted to learning about the University and its functioning in an effort to enhance the effectiveness of student leaders who are members.
Meetings and Events: The Student Leaders Advisory Council will gather at the beginning of each semester for a luncheon meeting. Subsequent meetings will be on the first Thursday of every month during the academic year at 3:30 p.m. in the Center for Multicultural Education.
