The AAUW-PA Student Advisory Council (SAC) members have done a great job serving as AAUW ambassadors, and lead gender equality projects on their campuses.  The SAC also advised the AAUW-PA board on the needs of college students.  At this time, the AAUW-PA state board has suspended the SAC.  We are exploring other leadership programs for students.
