2017-2018 Ad Hoc Committees

Established by the Board

Purpose: Ad Hoc Committees are typically created in situations where a task force does not apply but the Board is interested in exploring a new committee. These committees are typically lead by one or two board members and open to all students. Anyone who is interested in joining an ad hoc committee is encouraged to email the chair of that committee or President Max Kneis at sgbpres@pitt.edu.

The Diversity Committee acts a group to support the University’s initiatives in diversity and inclusion and to advocate for cultural competency on campus. This Committee is chaired by Board Member Alyssa Laguerta, who can be reached at aml181@pitt.edu.

The committee is currently working on the following projects:

  • Pitt Voices - a photojournalism project that aims to celebrate the diversity of the University of Pittsburgh campus
  • Human Rights Conference - a conference that aims to mobilize different activism movements happening in the local community on campus
  • Creating a map of all Gender Neutral bathrooms on campus

SGB and Sodexo have teamed up to serve our campus better! Every few Friday's Sodexo managers gather to hear suggestions about Pitt's food and dining serves from our students. Grub Club offers a truly unique opportunity to have direct contact with the people in charge of changing dining services. In addition to providing feedback, executive chefs from Market serves a delicious meal to all the students who attend. Meetings are typically held every few Fridays at 2pm in the Lower Lounge of the William Pitt Union. Check out the committee's social media, sign up for the email list, or contact the leadership for specific dates, times, and locations.
