Student Services Committee

services
The Student Services Committee is responsible for the advocacy of student quality of life concerns relating to health, dining, recreation, housing, transportation, environment, physical, and emotional safety. Advocacy does not always look the same; committee members may be meeting with administrators to change policy, working with other groups on accessibility issues, and/or hosting an event to connect students around campus. The options and avenues to pursue to effectively and inclusively advocate for the student body are countless. 

Subcommittees:

    • Mental Health & Wellness: promote the mental and physical wellness of the Undergraduate Student Body
    • Transportation and Recreation: promote the connections concerns students have between transportation and the quality of recreation experiences
    • Sustainability: promote the environmentally friendly status of the University of Connecticut and advocate for opportunities for students to lower their impact on their personal environmental footprint
    • Sexual Health and Wellness: providing students with education and resources regarding sexual health and sexuality
