Function: Make recommendations to the Higher Education Coordinating Board and review and comment on proposals and other matters before the board.
History: The Student Advisory Council was reviewed by the Legislative Commission on Planning and Fiscal Policy (LCPFP) in 2013 as part of their biennial duty required by Minn. Stat. 3.885 Subd. 11. The LCPFP's 2013 Recommendations called for keeping the council, and 2014 Minn. Laws Chap. 286 Art. 3 Sec. 2 contained minor amendments to the membership.
Membership: The members of SAC shall include: the chair of the University of Minnesota student senate; the state chair of the Minnesota State University Student Association; the president of the Minnesota State College Student Association and an officer of the Minnesota State College Student Association, one in a community college course of study and one in a technical college course of study; a student who is enrolled in a private nonprofit postsecondary institution, to be elected by students enrolled in Minnesota Private College Council institutions; and a student who is enrolled in a private for-profit postsecondary institution, to be elected by students enrolled in Minnesota Career College Association institutions. If students from the Minnesota Private College Council institutions do not elect a representative, the Minnesota Private College Council must appoint the private nonprofit representative. If students from the Minnesota Career College Association institutions do not elect a representative, the Minnesota Career College Association must appoint the private for-profit representative. A member may be represented by a student designee who attends an institution from the same system that the absent member represents.
