The University of Tampa’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a leadership group of appointed student-athletes representing each sports team within the UT Athletic Department.  SAAC is a student-run organization that provides insight and feedback to the athletic department on the student-athlete experience. SAAC also offers input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athletes' lives on our campus. Participation in this group is limited to those selected as representatives of their teams.

The mission of the NCAA Division II Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity for all student-athletes; protecting the student-athlete welfare, and fostering a positive student-athlete image.

The Division II SAAC is guided by the following principles: ethics, integrity, fairness, and respect for diversity, which shall include attention to gender, race, ethnicity, and sport.
