NC-SARA Committees

NC-SARA engages with several advisory committees to help provide feedback on or guide the work in specific areas.  

Data Advisory Committee 

The purpose of the NC-SARA Data Advisory Committee is to collaborate with and advise NC-SARA about data and research needs; to make recommendations on reporting requirements; to consider data reporting comments/questions submitted by states and institutions during the reporting period; to provide direction on potential research projects; and to act as a sounding board on data issues in general. The Committee serves in an advisory capacity to NC-SARA, with virtual meetings twice per year and one face-to-face meeting per year and possible conversations by email in between.

SPE Advisory Committee

The purpose of the NC-SARA State Portal Entity (SPE) Advisory Committee is to collaborate with and advise NC-SARA about SPE training needs and priorities, educational programs (e.g., Fall SPE Conference, Spring SPE Meeting), the Annual SPE Survey, and data reporting to states. The Committee also serves as an important component of the SARA community to help harvest from and share effective practices across the field, and to get feedback from SPEs on ideas for SPE outreach and engagement. The Committee serves in an advisory capacity with regular and substantive engagement. 

Institution Advisory Committee - Coming Soon!

The purpose of the NC-SARA Institution Advisory Committee is to collaborate with and advise NC-SARA about needs, engagement priorities, and programming for institutions (e.g., the annual In The Field institution conference, workshops, webinars, online training modules, etc.). The Committee will serve as an important component of the SARA community to help harvest from and share effective practices across the field to support SARA compliance; to be a direct voice from institutions in planning programming; and to get feedback from institutions on ideas. The Committee will serve in an advisory capacity to NC-SARA and the regional compacts’ SARA dedicated staff, with virtual meetings three times per year and engagement by email in between.
