SU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

Release:  09/18/2007

 

The NCAA sponsors a Division-wide Student Athlete Advisory Committee whose mission is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity for all student-athletes; protecting student-athlete welfare; and fostering a positive student-athlete image. The Division I SAAC is guided by the following principles: ethics, integrity, fairness and respect for diversity, which shall include attention to gender, race, ethnicity and sport.

 

With the division-wide SAAC as a model, the Seattle University Athletics Department sponsors a Student-Athlete Advisory Committee specific to our institution. This group serves in an advisory capacity to the Athletics Department and Univer­sity as needed.

 

This is an excellent way for the student-athlete’s voice to be heard by and represent­ed to the administration. The Redhawk SAAC is comprised of two members of each intercollegiate team. The student-athletes are nominated by their Head Coaches and are expected to be leaders and exemplary role models for their respective teams, as well as to all student-athletes and the general student body.

  

The Seattle University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee was formed for the fol­lowing purposes:

 

  1. To streamline and promote efficient communication between administration and student-athletes to better serve their needs.
  2. To provide the student-athlete population with an opportunity to more ef­fectively communicate with the administration and offer suggestions on programs designed to serve those needs.
  3. To encourage more involvement of the student-athletes in campus and com­munity projects.
  4. To design and provide programs which will encourage academic achieve­ment, health promotion, social responsibility, and general awareness.
  5. To promote better communication between teams.
