Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a student-athlete organization that provides team representation to the athletic department and input on athletic department policy and programming.

Facilitated by the President, SAAC meets monthly to discuss current issues affecting student-athletes, provide feedback on programs and policies, provide community service opportunities, and plan upcoming events. Meetings are open to any student-athlete and if you are interested in becoming active in SAAC, please contact Emma Sampson at


  1. Promote effective communication between the athletic department administration and the student-athlete population.
  2. Provide the student-athletes with an opportunity to have input into the educational and personal development programs that serve the needs of today's student-athletes.
