Shaw Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

Intercollegiate athletics places unusual demands on student-athletes. Athletic and academic interests compete for the student-athlete’s time, energy, and attention. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) of Shaw University believes that colleges and universities can and must provide the opportunity for student-athletes to be both successful students and fulfilled athletes.

The Shaw University SAAC committee is made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on the student-athlete experience and offer input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on campus.

Functions of campus SAACs:

  • Promote communication between athletics administration and student-athletes.
  • Disseminate information.
  • Provide feedback and insight into athletics department issues.
  • Generate a student-athlete voice within the campus athletics department formulation of policies.
  • Build a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletics teams.
  • Solicit student-athlete responses to proposed conference and NCAA legislation.
  • Organize community service efforts.
  • Promote a positive student-athlete image on campus.
