Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is comprised of leaders from each team who represent their fellow student-athletes and act as liaisons to the University of Arkansas, the Athletic Department, the SEC and the NCAA. Through SAAC, valuable opportunities are provided for all student-athletes to grow through personal development and service learning, while improving the overall student-athlete experience for now and the future.
