SStudent Athletic Advisory Committee - SAAC

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) was formed in the fall of 1993 for the purpose of recognizing the student-athlete in the fields of academics and athletics. Also, it aims to implement programs that will promote a positive image of intercollegiate athletics and the student-athlete. Most importantly, SAAC gives the student-athlete a voice in the administration of the Athletics Department.

The SAAC meets once a month to discuss issues pertinent to the student-athlete. The members of the committee are the liaisons between their team members and the administration. This committee is very important to the welfare and experience of the student-athlete.
