Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) SAAC representatives play an important role in bridging the gap between administrative personnel and the student-athlete body both at their respective institutions and throughout the conference. The committee is designed to incorporate ideas and opinions from student-athletes into legislative decisions that will affect our academic and athletic pursuits. These athletes are developing valuable leadership skills as they address changes in rules and regulations, organize community service events, and build a positive image for collegiate athletes.

ACC SAAC Guiding Principles

The ACC SAAC will be guided by the following principles: ethics, integrity, fairness, and a respect for diversity, which shall include attention to gender, race, ethnicity and sport.

Mission Statement

The Atlantic Coast Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, which represents diverse views and backgrounds of student-athletes, was established 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.

History of the ACC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) was created in 1998 with the purpose of reviewing the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) activities and proposed legislation and offer student-athletes input to a variety of Conference constituencies.

The initial committee was comprised of one student-athlete from all nine (9) institutions ensuring that the student-athlete voice accounted for the myriad of educational and athletics experiences of both female and male student-athletes at all ACC member institutions. In May of 2000, the Conference decided to elect two representatives from each school, preferably participants of different seasons with hopes of all sports represented and availability of at least one student-athlete to attend each meeting. May 2001, the conference approved to assign two alternates from each institution with intent to have 2 representatives at each meeting.

Each school is responsible for nominating at least four student-athletes to represent their institution on the SAAC. The ACC will select two student-athletes from each institution. The other two will serve as alternates. There will be one student-athlete from the SAAC who will represent the ACC on the NCAA SAAC.
