WHAT IS S.A.A.C.?:
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is a committee made up of student-athletes assembled to provide insight on their experience. The group also offers input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses. - ncaa.org
Our mission as the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the Student-Athlete experience by providing opportunity for personal growth, and to promote continued conversation between our student-athletes, AU’s athletic department, and the NCAA. SAAC strives to develop and maintain a positive student-athlete image, and to build a sense of community throughout all of AU’s 23 varsity sports.

"Since beginning its alliance with Make-A-Wish in 2003, Division II has raised more than $3.5 million toward granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions. More than 470 “wishes” have been granted through Division II contributions. These wishes can serve as a game changer in children’s fights against their illnesses, helping them feel better, and in some cases even get better." - ncaa.org
Led by the Division II Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, Division II schools partner with the Make-A-Wish foundation to raise funds nation wide for the organization.
In 2015-16 the Ashland University S.A.A.C. has marked a goal to raise $5,000 for the Make-A-Wish foundation.
