The Student Advisory Council (SAC) membership gives students invested in Ethnic and Indigenous Studies, and in studies of migration and human rights, opportunities to advise on EMR programming. Representatives from EMR Working Groups, the Ethnic Studies Coalition, and the Task Force for Asian American Progressive Advocacy and Studies offer organizational updates and peer support, and strategize intergroup collaborations. Important aspects of our regular operations, such as the weekly EMR newsletter, began around this table as student suggestions!
