ASU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee
About the SAAC:
The ASU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee membership is composed of two members from each intercollegiate team and cheerleading squad, with one representative from the sports medicine staff.
These members serve as a conduit of communication among student-athletes, coaches and athletics administrators on issues to improve the student-athlete experience and promote growth and education through sports participation. Concerns can be voiced and solutions offered regarding any issue that may be relevant to student-athletes.
Functions of the SAAC:
- Promote communication between athletics administration and student-athletes.
- Disseminate information.
- Provide feedback and insight into athletics department issues.
- Generate a student-athlete voice within the athletics department formulation of policies.
- Build a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletics teams.
- Solicit student-athlete responses to proposed conference and NCAA legislation.
- Organize community service efforts.
- Create a vehicle for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees.
- Promote a positive student-athlete image on campus.
The SAAC members meet monthly under the direction of an elected president and a senior member of the athletic management team.
