The mission of the NCAA Division II Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity for all student-athletes; protecting student-athlete welfare; and fostering a positive student-athlete image.
Division II Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Guiding Principles
Division II SAAC will be guided by the following principles: ethics, integrity, fairness, and a respect for diversity and inclusion which shall include attention to gender, race, ethnicity, and sport.
Division II SAAC’s purpose is meant to reflect the voice of the student-athlete and should adhere to the following guiding principle in all of its processes and decision making: The well-being of student-athletes is at the center of what SAAC does:
- Any process must be flexible and timely, and include effective communication.
- Decisions must be fair, reasonable, and consider the potential impact on the student-athlete.
We, as the NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, will ultimately hold one another accountable for all actions, particularly those actions taking place during the SAAC meetings.
