The Library Student Advisory Committee (LSAC) gives students a voice in library services, spaces, and resources. LSAC collaborates with Wilson Library administration and staff to provide ideas, feedback, and advocacy to create a stronger library and promote student success. The group will serve as a two-way forum for exchanging information between students at S&T and the Library.
Who is on LSAC?
