Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)
The purpose of SAAC is to support the mission of Athletics by
providing a forum in which student-athletes and administrators can
enhance the athletics experience at SIUE for the student-athletes,
the campus community, and the community-at-large through the
examination of mutual interests and concerns. The committee is
comprised of a representative and an alternate representative from
each athletic team and athletic administrators. This group of
student-athletes meets monthly.
