A student-athlete advisory committee (SAAC) is a
committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on their
experience. The SAAC also offers input on the rules, regulations and policies
that affect student-athletes’ lives on NCAA member institution campuses.
The Division I national SAAC consists of one student-athlete from each of the 31 Division I conferences. Members are selected by the current Division I SAAC members from a pool of three nominees from each of the represented conferences. Each student-athlete serves a two-year term.
