Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

A Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on the student-athlete experience. The committee offers input on the rules, regulations, and policies that affect student-athletes’ lives. AUC SAAC's goals are to engage in community service projects, build a sense of community within each athletic team, and develop student-athlete leaders.

3. To encourage more active involvement by the student-athletes on campus and in community projects
4. To encourage unity and common purpose between teams and among all student-athletes at AUC
