Student-Athlete Advisory Council

Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC): 

SAAC is a registered student organization that provides student-athletes with the education and experiences needed to assist them in bridging the gap from college to the professional world, and to encourage meaningful contributions to their communities. Membership consists of four executive board members, team representatives and additional student-athletes seeking involvement in programming provided by SAAC. SAAC plans activities consistent with the three commitments of the Life Skills program: personal development, community service, and career development. Each segment is viewed as critical in the personal growth process of student-athletes.
