C-USA SAAC Mission Statement

To provide a forum for student-athlete to express ideas, concerns, and opinions relating to NCAA and Conference legislation as well as other issues that affect their welfare. Maintain a positive environment that fosters a healthy relationship between athletic administrators and student-athletes. Provide an environment that values cultural diversity and gender equity among student-athletes and community service.

About C-USA SAAC

In 1998, the NCAA adopted proposal No. 98-99 which mandated that Division I conferences have a student-athlete advisory committee, thus Conference USA SAAC was formed. The Committee consists of twelve members (one from each institution). One of the twelve members serves as Chair and one member serves as Vice Chair. The Committee meets five times a year, including one in-person meeting. The Committee provides insight on the student-athlete experience and offers input on the rules, regulations and polices that affect student-athletes' lives within Conference USA. The Committee functions to strengthen the communication between the campus and national committees. The Committee reviews all issues relating to the student-athlete experience and welfare. Through increased communication and networking, the SAAC hopes to better represent the views of all student-athletes.
