Student-Athlete Advisory Council

Student-Athlete Advisory Council was established to address the concerns directly or indirectly related to student-athlete welfare. SAAC is comprised of two student-athlete representatives, nominated through their head coach, from each intercollegiate sports team. Representatives are required to attend monthly meetings to discuss various topics that concern student-athletes on and off the field. The primary goal of this committee is to:

 Adovate for student-athlete rights

 Encourage participation in campus organizations

 Share academic, financial, ad social information with teammates

 Maintain positive relationships between student-athletes, general student population, and Mason Administration

 Participate in opportunities to enhance leadership skills

 Promote community service

 Promote special events for student-athletes

 Atlantic 10 SAAC

The Atlantic 10 Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) consists of  student-athlete representatives from each member institution. Institutions can designate one student-athlete to serve as an alternate on the committee. In addition, the committee includes three ex-officio members, specifically a Director of Athletics, a Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) and a Senior Woman Administrator (SWA).

Conference SAAC organizations were created to strengthen the communication between campus SAACs and the national SAAC committees. Through increased communication and networking, the goal is to better represent the views of all student-athletes. Additionally, the guiding principle of the A-10 SAAC is to serve as a medium of communication through which student-athletes, conference administrators, institutional representatives, NCAA representatives and coaches discuss and take action on issues relating to rules and regulations, student-athlete welfare and community service.

With the principle of conference SAAC organizations in mind (to represent the views of all student-athletes), it is the responsibility of each Atlantic 10 Conference SAAC representative and alternate to participate in all meetings and activities conducted for the conference SAAC, to engage and effectively communicate pertinent issues to their respective campus SAAC organizations, and also to appropriately represent their campus SAAC organizations.
