Join the SHIFT Student Advisory Board
Join the conversation - be a part of the SHIFT SAB!
Students play a vital and unique role in the mission of SHIFT. You
are the real agents of change on campus. Our work has little merit without student voices and
perspectives. We not only encourage SAB members to provide input on ongoing projects and programming
but also come up with their own creative ideas.
For example, a former SHIFT intern and SAB member developed and launched SHIFT Spotlights, quick video interviews led by UT students, as a way to highlight our community partners’ work in substance misuse prevention. Members also regularly contribute ideas to our social media content related to substance use safety and harm-reduction.
You have invaluable insight into what your fellow Longhorns need to know when it comes to making more mindful decisions and taking ownership of their health and well-being. Real culture change starts with YOU.
The mission of the SAB is to advise, facilitate, and promote the success of SHIFT initiatives within academic and social settings both on UT’s campus and in the greater Austin community.
The vision of the SAB is that members will be active participants in SHIFT’s call to positively impact the campus culture of substance use away from misuse and toward holistic health and well-being.
