Mission Statement

We, the members of SHAC, are committed to uniting people of different cultures and backgrounds in an environment where everybody is welcomed, and where leadership roles are developed in the context of Multiculturalism.  We promote multiculturalism in the school community and acceptance and appreciation of it.

SHAC is currently in the process of transitioning to a Representative Board status effective September 2007.  Therefore, for the remainder of the Spring 2007 semester, SHAC will be devoting much if its time and resources to the drafting  new governing documents and reorganization of its structure.  The officers of SHAC appreciate your support!
