What is the GW SAAC?
The George Washington University Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) works in conjunction with the Atlantic 10 Conference SAAC to improve the student-athlete experience by facilitating communication between student-athletes and the administration. This communication and interaction is key in shaping intercollegiate athletics policies throughout Division I which enhance student-athlete experiences.
SAAC also works to solicit student-athlete responses to NCAA proposed legislation as well as organizing community service opportunities, promoting competition, building a sense of community among student-athletes, and hosting activities. SAAC is comprised of at least one representatives from each of GW's 23 varsity teams who then elect an executive board. Members meet once a month with Department of Athletics Administrators and other campus constituencies in addition to meeting once or twice a month on their own to discuss ongoing projects and to explore new opportunities.
