|STUDENT-ATHLETE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (MEAC/SAAC)|
The purpose of the MEAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (MEAC/SAAC) is to foster a unified forum, which provides equal and representative dialogue from MEAC student-athletes relating to NCAA and Conference legislation as well as other issues that affect their welfare. Further, this committee would strive to maintain a positive environment that cultivates a healthy relationship between the athletic administrators and the student-athletes. The Committee is dedicated to maintaining a positive commitment to support and value diversity and equity among student-athletes.
The MEAC Student-Athletes Advisory Committee (MEAC/SAAC) shall consist of 26 members (one from each member instruction) and two (2) ex-officio members (the MEAC NCAA Student-Athlete Advisory representative and a Conference Representative). The committee will have liaison each from the Director of Athletics, Senior Woman Administrators Committees and a direct line of communication to the Faculty Athletics Representatives as appropriate.
MEAC institutions may nominate any student-athletes who practices or competes (except non/partial qualifiers, who will not be eligible to serve on the MEAC/SAAC during the first year of residence at the member instruction) in a varsity, NCAA sponsored sport.
