Student Athlete Advisory Committee

executive board executive board

The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience at Cal State Fullerton. SAAC is dedicated to connecting student-athletes to the university and to one another, making voluntary involvement with Titan Athletics a lifelong experience. SAAC recognizes the unique concerns and responsibilities involved with being a student-athlete. Comprehensive programming includes academic, athletic, social, career and community service activities.

Student-athlete representatives from each sport meet bi-weekly to plan community service activities, develop leadership skills, and act as the voice of the student-athlete to the Athletics Advisory Board and the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.

The campus SAAC also serves as a conduit of communication between student-athletes, coaches and athletics administrators to improve the student-athlete experience and promote growth and education through sports participation. Concerns can be voiced and solutions offered regarding any issue that may be relevant to student athletes. Through the grass-roots efforts of SAAC, student-athletes have the opportunity to change the face of intercollegiate athletics.

Functions of Campus SAAC’s:

  • Promote communication between athletics administration and student-athletes.
  • Disseminate information.
  • Provide feedback and insight into athletics department issues.
  • Generate a student-athlete voice within the campus athletics department formulation of policies.
  • Build a sense of community within the athletics program involving all athletics teams.
  • Solicit student athlete responses to proposed conference and NCAA legislation.
  • Organize community service efforts.
  • Create a vehicle for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees (e.g., student government, department committees).
  • Promote a positive image of CSUF student-athlete’s on campus and in the community.
