Student Advisory Council

Interpreter Education Program (IEP)
Student Advisory Council (SAC)

UALR’s Interpreter Education Program convenes the Student Advisory Council (SAC) each Fall and Spring semester. The SAC is comprised of interested students in: the ASL sequenced classes (I-IV), Sign Language Studies Minor, and AA degree and BA degree programs. Through the SAC students contribute to the Interpreter Education Program by sharing their thoughts, experiences and ideas with the faculty for the purpose of program innovation, assessment and improvement. Faculty are interested in learning about students’ perspectives on a wide variety of topics such as advising procedures, course content, new program ideas, classroom technology, service learning experiences, student life, etc. Information gathered from the meetings is discussed with faculty and resulting actions are reported back to the SAC. During the Spring semester the SAC meets in a combined meeting with the IEP’s community Advisory Council. The IEP Faculty values the input of SAC students and encourages interested students to consider serving in this important way.

Students interested in serving on the SAC may apply each semester. In order to serve on the SAC, a student must:

  1. apply by sending an email to Linda Stauffer at
  2. include a short paragraph describing his/her interest in serving on this Council, and
  3. commit to attend both published meetings of the SAC that semester

For more information, contact Linda Stauffer at, or office phone at 501-569-3169 (v/tty).
