Student-Athlete Advisory Council

 

The mission statement of the StFX University Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare, and fostering a positive student-athlete image.  The focus of the group is leadership and production; in the classroom, on their teams, across campus and in the community.

 

The purpose of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) is:

1. To promote communication between athletics administration and student-athletes.
2. To provide equal and representative input of StFX student-athletes.
3. Provide feedback and insight into athletics department issues.
4. To build a sense of community within the athletic program involving all athletic teams.
5. Create relationships between student-athletes and the community by organizing  community service efforts   and raising funds for various causes.
6. To promote a positive student-athlete image on campus.
7. Disseminate information.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Council is comprised of two athletes per StFX varsity team who should be third, fourth, or fifth year students. Members are selected each fall by the head coaches or Athletic Department administration and must play an active role in the planning and execution of SAAC events and initiatives. The Team meets monthly and is led by five executive officers and an appointed advisor. The executive officers include male and female co-presidents, a vice president, community ambassador and public relations coordinator.
