    Programming Committee - The Student Affairs Programming Committee (SAPC) is a group of Student Affairs professionals who work together to create a comprehensive co-curricular experience for all EMU students. The SAPC meets regularly to accomplish three primary objectives- measure student programming needs and interests, develop and implement division-wide programming initiatives, and fund new programs within the division. After measuring student programming preferences each year, the committee works together to deliver programs that contribute to a student’s wellbeing and academic success while creating a fun, engaging college experience.
