What is SAAC?
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a student-led group consisting of members from each of our 21 varsity sports, including an executive board. Saint Michael’s SAAC has four main focuses, including: NCAA Legislation, Community Service, Campus Engagement and Leadership. Through each of these four themes, SAAC has a commitment to both the Saint Michael’s and surrounding communities, but also to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The group meets monthly and discusses the student-athlete experience, NCAA legislative proposals, and also plans and implements fundraisers and activities for the campus and local community. Saint Michael’s SAAC is committed to enhancing the student-athlete experience through the voice of student-athletes as well as using this platform to engage the local and campus communities.

Our SAAC Division II Mission Statement
To enhance the overall student-athlete experience by giving opportunities to student-athletes, protecting student-athlete welfare, and creating and fostering a united and positive student-athlete image.

Division II SAAC Guiding Principles
The Division II SAAC will be guided by the following principles: ethics, integrity, fairness and respect for diversity, which shall include attention to gender, race, ethnicity and sport.

Governing Rule
We, as the NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, will ultimately hold one another accountable for all actions, particularly those actions taking place during the SAAC meetings.
