Advisory committee seeks input from UNC students


The student leadership advisory committee consists of 12 students that directly advise the vice chancellor for student affairs. SLAC was created in 2008 and serves as both a student voice to the administration and as a liaison between the two. SLAC addresses a broad range of issues on behalf of the student body, spanning from housing to dining to Greek affairs.

This year, as a result of having spoken with fellow students and identifying a need for the extension of the hours in Davis Library, SLAC worked with library administration to implement this change. Beginning in fall 2010, Davis Library will now be open until 2 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

SLAC’s goal is to continuously strive to work on issues pertinent to the student body; however, this is an enormous undertaking that cannot be accomplished by the 12 students on the committee alone. Thus, in an effort to solicit the critical input of our peers, SLAC would like to present a challenge to each UNC student.

Our challenge is for every student to think of one great thing Carolina does and one area for improvement as it pertains to student life, campus life and campus culture. Simply send us a quick e-mail,, and we will not only place it on our agenda of topics to explore, but we will also do our best to begin healthy dialogues with campus administration surrounding your concerns.

SLAC and the Office of Student Affairs will also be holding office hours in the Pit on Jan. 21, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. We encourage you to come out and voice your opinions, suggestions and comments to members of SLAC and to various administrators from the Office of Student Affairs. SLAC was created with the interests of students in mind, and it seeks to continuously improve the Carolina experience.
