Student Athlete Advisory Committee
As the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), it is our mission to encourage responsible behavior on and off the athletic fields, and to instill positive leadership qualities, good sportsmanship and teamwork. We will promote equity for all student-athletes and respect for both ourselves and others while conducting ourselves in a professional manner with integrity and honor.
SAAC serves as a vehicle for addressing and discussing concerns and issues facing student-athletes. The committee shall represent all student-athletes who participate in intercollegiate athletics. In addition, the committee will promote and celebrate student-athletes' achievements. As a whole community, we will promote and embrace Morrisville State College.
The SAAC will serve as the liaison between the student-athletes of DIII NCAA member institutions and the administrators. The committee will serve as a voice to represent the concerns of all student-athletes and to discuss issues effecting student-athlete well-being, as well as the positive attributes student-athletes bring to their campus.
Committee members shall be appointed by the end of the spring semester (if not possible, they must be appointed by September 1).
Individual committee members shall serve a minimum of two years and may serve more than one term. Each representative should have an alternate appointed in the event that they cannot attend. The committee encourages that student-athletes not be appointed or elected to serve soley for their senior year. Officers must serve at least two years or until they leave school.
Meetings will be held every two weeks unless notified otherwise.
