Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

Mission Statement
The mission of the Student Athlete - Advisory Committee (SAAC) of Northern Illinois University is to inspire and enhance the student-athlete experience through promoting opportunities within the university, athletic department, and outside community while providing a facet to serve and protect the interests and image of the student athlete.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a leadership group made up of student-athletes that facilitates discussions of issues specific to the student-athlete experience. This committee serves as a liaison between athletes, coaches, administration, and the NCAA. Traditionally, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee also offers input on rules, regulations and interpretations that directly affect the lives of student-athletes.

Team Representatives

Two student-athletes from each athletic team represent their team on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Representatives will attend monthly SAAC meetings, provide their team with SAAC updates, as well as encourage participation in SAAC community service and events.


SAAC meets one Monday night each month in the Yordon Center @ 9PM. Any student-athletes can attend SAAC meetings along with their team representatives. Points towards the Victors Cup can be earned with both representatives in attendance at SAAC meetings. If the meeting conflicts with competition, the points can be earned by receiving the missed meeting's minutes from the Huskie Life Skills office.
