With the division-wide SAAC and WAC SAAC as models, 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. SAAC is an excellent way for the student-athletes' 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.
