Background: The Student Section Executive Committee (SSEC) was approved by the TSHP Board of Directors in 1997, but it was not until the 1998-1999 academic year that the SSEC became an official council. The council originally consisted of representatives from Student Society chapters of the University of Texas, Texas Tech University, University of Houston, and Texas Southern University Colleges of Pharmacy. Today, the council consists of three representatives from all six Texas Student Society chapters, including a Chair, and a Vice Chair.

Students have the opportunity to develop mentoring relationships across the state through involvement in TSHP activities.
The TSHP Research and Education Foundation provides numerous scholarships for students.
