The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is to serve as a vehicle to promote communication between the athletic administration and student-athletes at Northwestern by providing a student-athlete voice within the department, discussing issues and concerns, and providing feedback as necessary. SAAC also serves in a leadership role recruiting fellow student-athletes to serve the campus, Evanston, and the surrounding area through a variety of community service programs and events. Further, it is our privilege and responsibility to enhance the relationships between the Athletic Department and all other realms within Northwestern University.

Meetings are held in Annenberg Hall.
SAAC meetings take place every two weeks. The start time alternates between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. The 7 p.m. meetings are open to all student-athletes. The 9 p.m. meetings are reserved for appointed SAAC reps.
SAAC is a fantastic way to further strengthen the bonds within the student-athlete community. Through SAAC, athletes are granted a voice in the administration and receive opportunities to become involved in their community. SAAC helps athletes to develop skills whereby they can become even better leaders than they already are.
