What is SAAC?
The University of Pennsylvania's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is made up of student-athlete representatives, and is a vehicle to promote communication between the athletic administration and student-athletes. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Director of Athletics, providing a student-athlete voice within the department, discussing issues and concerns, and providing feedback as necessary. SAAC membership should be representative of the diversity of the student-athlete population (i.e. gender, ethnic, undergraduate class) and involve representatives from each sport. Each member serves as a liaison between the committee and his or her team.

The role of SAAC is to reflect the interests and concerns of the Penn student-athlete by the following:
* Provide a student-athlete voice within the department, discussing issues and concerns and providing feedback as necessary.
* Provide student athlete response to NCAA and Ivy League legislation and suggestions for proposed legislation.
* Foster student-athlete welfare issues (i.e. overall educational experience; cultural diversity and gender equity; health and safety; student-athlete/coach relationships; fairness; openness and honesty; student-athlete involvement)
* Foster achievement of academic and athletic goals.
* Foster community service efforts.

The membership of SAAC should be representative of the diversity of the student-athlete population (i.e. gender, ethnic, undergraduate class) and involve representatives from each sport. Each member serves as a liaison between the committee and his or her team. To foster continuity, a combination of sophomore, junior and senior membership with a commitment of two (2) years is preferred. However, the appointment must be reaffirmed by the team after the first year.

An executive board of SAAC will be appointed annually by the membership. This board will consist of the SAAC officers and at least two at-large members.
