Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC)

“Be a Voice, Make a Change” is the slogan of the University of Northern Iowa’s Student Health Advisory Committee. Affectionately known as “SHAC”, the Student Health Advisory Committee brings passionate students together to serve the UNI population through advocating for student health needs. This fall, SHAC is launching an effort to grow its numbers, and we want YOU to consider being involved. You might want to take part in this special group because of its commitment to promoting healthy behaviors and its opportunity for leadership development.

Do it 4 YOU! Alcohol and Other Drug Campaign

Student Wellness Services developed an alcohol and other drug social norms campaign based on data from the Spring 2017 UNI National College Health Assessment. The data shows that many UNI Students greatly overestimate the amount of high-risk drinking or drug use that occurs at UNI. Contrary to this belief, our data shows that many UNI students are making responsible and healthy choices related to alcohol and other drugs. We are seeking to provide students with an accurate picture of alcohol and other drug use on campus in effort to influence healthy behaviors and reduce substance abuse at UNI. For questions or to learn more about the campaign, email
