The mission of the Enrollment and Student Affairs Student Advisory Council (ESAAC) is to support the Division’s strategic plan, An Experience Like No Other, which articulates a vision to reach Augusta University’s aspirational imperatives of 16,000 students by 2030 and the Carnegie Community Engagement Classification by 2026. The Student Advisory Council provides feedback and recommendations to equip the Division to create a transformative college experience from recruitment to graduation that fosters holistic growth, civic engagement, and courageous leadership in a dynamic global society. In sharing this feedback, members of the Student Advisory Council serve as trusted confidantes for the Vice President and her Leadership Team. In learning more about the Division and its programs, services, and initiatives, members serve as influencers for the student body.

Council Membership

  • The meetings are hosted by the Vice President for Enrollment and Student Affairs who requests feedback, views, and recommendations from a variety of student members who represent the varied colleges, organizations, and students on campus.  The primary purpose of the group is to make suggestions on ways to increase student learning and improve student life at Augusta University. 
  • This group will discuss issues and suggestions relating to student life, support, and engagement, including programming, services, policies, and other university initiatives. Members will serve as trusted advisors to the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs and will be well-informed on issues at the university.  Members are expected to share the information with the student-body at large to elicit campus-wide student opinion. 
  • The members of the council will be selected based upon their application materials. Our goal is to select a diverse group students from various colleges and majors. Forty applicants in total will be selected to serve on this council. Each member will serve a one or two-year term on the council. 


There will be two (2) meetings each semester (fall and spring). Meetings will take place from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm in the Oak Hall Connect space on the Health Science campus. Council members will receive regular emails that will include the date, relevant information, location, and minutes of each meeting.  To remain in good standing, members must attend three (3) of the four (4) meetings per year.


Selected students are expected to arrive on time to the meetings and to participate in the discussions, providing relevant and insightful information on behalf of their peers.  To remain in good standing, members must attend three (3) of the four (4) meetings per year.
