Student-Athletic Advisory Committee

Mission Statement:

The Ursinus College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is an organization of student-athlete leaders who represent the best interests of the student-athlete experience at Ursinus College, within the Centennial Conference and within the NCAA Division III. SAAC is dedicated to promoting excellence in academics and athletics, sportsmanship, citizenship and volunteerism while serving a liaison function between the college’s student athletes, and the athletic administration.

SAAC intends to enhance the student-athlete experience at Ursinus College and encourages input and feedback from the student body about any issues that need to be addressed or ideas that should be considered.
