STUDENT-ATHLETE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
What is a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee? (SAAC)
SAAC is a committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on the student-athlete experience. The purpose of this Student Athlete Advisory Committee is to:
- Encourage more student-athlete involvement in campus and community projects, as well as leadership and development.
- Serve as a liaison between student-athletes and the Athletic Department and Administration
- Promote better communication and interaction between the members of the Newberry College Intercollegiate Athletics teams, and emphasize communication to improve the overall athletic program
SAAC also offers input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses. The network of SAACs, from individual campus committees to the conference and/or national committees, interact and support one another to shape intercollegiate athletics policy and enhance the student-athlete experience.
