Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

Statement of Purpose/Organization Description: The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) at The University of Texas at Tyler consists of two student athletes representing each Patriots sports team. These student athletes are assembled to provide insight on the student athlete experience and offer input on the rules, regulations, and policies that affect student athletes' lives at UT Tyler and all NCAA member institutions. They also promote communication between athletics administration and student athletes, work to promote a positive student athlete image, organize community service efforts, build a sense of community within the athletics program, and generate a student athlete voice in the formation of athletic policies.
