Virtual Learning Student Advisory Council (VLSAC)

Who We Are... The VLSAC is a volunteer student organization comprised of registered HACC students who utilize the online learning format to take classes. VLSAC endeavor to be a group of students who consistently come together, in an online meeting space, to discuss, and champion the wants, needs and goals of the online student body.

When and How Do We Meet...
Meetings are typically online and many students stay connected through the VLSAC Facebook page and D2L.
