Secondly, there is the Housing Affairs Council (HAC), which exists to make your life easier (really, that’s their motto!) when it comes to housing at UCR. Thirdly, there is the Academic Affairs Council (AAC), which represents all students on all academic matters, mediates between students and faculty, and handles students’ complaints. Finally, the Elliott board, who are in charge of the Common House Elliott.
