Student Advisory Committee
The Student Advisory Committee (SAC) is the undergraduate student-led advisory body of the UC Berkeley Labor Center in the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE). The SAC aims to engage the broader campus community on the most critical issues facing workers through student outreach, organization, education, mobilization, and solidarity support. The SAC serves as a liaison between undergraduate students, the Labor Center, and the local labor movement, striving to create a diverse new generation of labor leaders through project-based endeavors.
