SAAC

Student Athlete Advisory Committee (2014-2015)

What is SAAC?

SAAC is the voice of the student athlete.

Student-athletes have a voice in the NCAA through advisory committees at the campus, conference and national level. Each committee is made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on the student-athlete experience and offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on campus.

Meetings are held every-other Sunday at 7:00 p.m. in the Coaches' Suite in Kaiser Hall.
