What is 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 SAAC also offers input on the rules, regulations and polices that affect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses.
"Presently, there are separate national SAACs for NCAA Divisions I, II and III. NCAA legislation mandates that all member institutions have SAACs on their respective campuses. Further, NCAA legislation requires that all member conferences have SAACs."

"The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a body of student-athletes (two representatives from each athletic team), cheerleaders and student trainers who have been selected by the LU Athletics Administration, coaches and athletes. SAAC provides its members an environment to express opinions, concerns, and new ideas that would enhance the student-athletes’ experience at Liberty. The committee also offers the student-athletes an opportunity to have a more personal relationship with members of the athletics department administration and with the community by assisting local charities and community programs."
