English Undergraduate Student Advisory Council

The Undergraduate Student Advisory Council (USAC) is a professional development student organization, which provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to have a direct impact on their English education.

Students on the board work with faculty, staff, and their fellow students to develop outreach programs to promote the major and minors, connect with donors, and work on student community building.
