The Library Student Advisory Committee was created to give student a voice in library services, spaces, and resources. LSAC collaborates with Stewart Library administration and staff to provide ideas, feedback, and advocacy to create a stronger library and promote student success.
*In the 2022-2023 academic year, we are focusing our efforts on the equity-minded practice audit that the library began in spring of 2021. *LSAC will actively engage in critical conversations about library policies and practices that can promote more equitable educational outcomes and build relationships with traditionally marginalized or excluded communities, including BIPOC students, Pell-eligible students, first generation students, students with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ students. Membership will consist of undergraduate and graduate students that broadly represent the academic programs and overall diversity of the WSU student body.
Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are due October 3, 2022.
