Student Honors Advisory Council

The Student Honors Advisory Council serves as the student goverment body for the JMU Honors Program. This group of 20-30 Honors students represents the interests of Honors students, develops community through the Madision Honors student organization, and works directly with Honors staff to develop programs and initiatives that are student-centered. The student council plays a direct role in shaping the future of the Honors Program.
