Student Advisory Council
The Student Advisory Council is a credible and sought-after resource that represents the voice and sentiment of the BYU student body. The Council collaborates with BYU students, faculty, administration, and staff to improve the overall BYU student experience.
The Student Advisory Council is a representative body of students from various colleges, departments, organizations, and groups on campus. The Student Advisory Council serves the BYU community by accurately representing student opinion to the BYU administration, enhancing their ability to make informed decisions. The Student Advisory Council also decides on various research projects meant to improve the overall BYU student experience and then collaborates with BYU students, faculty, administration, and staff on the implementation of these initiatives. Findings are then compiled in both a final report and a presentation to be used to advise and offer recommendations to administration.
(selected representatives are enrolled in a 2 credit class)
Student Voice works to process student suggestions and works on small and/or medium sized research projects. These projects typically last less than one semester as opposed to the Student Advisory Council research projects which are worked on for both Fall and Winter semester.
- Strengthen student voice - students’ ideas and expressed opinions are acknowledged, advocated for, and acted upon as a result of student outreach, inclusive collaboration, meaningful research, and civil discourse
- Increase student knowledge - students’ understanding is informed through research, policy study, and interactions with the BYU administration and students
- Impact student perspective - students’ viewpoints are enlightened as a result of dialogue and discourse with fellow students and BYU administrators
The Student Advisory Council will start new projects in the Fall semester. Come back here to learn more about what we will be working on this year.
Students apply to our general database (apply below). After a GPA and Honor Code check, we then forward the application to the college, department, or organization they wish to represent. The college or department chooses their representative through their own selection process and then we may hold interviews before doing the additional administrative work to add selected applicants to the Council.
