Social Equity Student Advisory Council

          Social Equity Student Advisory Council members strive to be role models within the University and the community. Serving as representatives for Edinboro University and the student body, the Social Equity Student Advisory Council assists with recruiting prospective students and retaining current students by working with faculty, staff, students and members of the community to ensure that Edinboro University is a welcoming learning environment for all students.

          Social Equity Student Advisory Council members have the opportunity to interact with the President and members of the President’s Executive Leadership Team and engage with their classmates while promoting social equity and social justice within the University. The council provides opportunities for students to strengthen their knowledge and awareness of social equity issues and share this knowledge as volunteers at numerous events including Welcome Week, New Student Orientation, Lecture Series, Homecoming, the President’s Commissions, and special gatherings hosted by the Chief Diversity Officer.
