Student Athlete Advisory Committee

Student Athlete Advisory Committee

The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to provide a means of communication between Berea College student-athletes and the administration of the Athletic Department.  The intention of this collaboration is to enhance the student-athlete experience on our campus and to protect both the health and well-being of all student-athletes at Berea.

To accomplish this mission, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) was created in the fall of 2013 to achieve the following purposes:
  1. To promote communication amongst athletic department personnel, faculty, college administration and student-athletes.
  2. To promote an understanding of the needs of Berea College student-athletes within the campus community, the conference and our national association.
  3. To solicit the input of student-athletes regarding proposed campus, conference and national legislation that has an effect on the student-athlete experience.
  4. To actively promote Berea College athletics to the campus community.
  5. To create an avenue for student-athlete representation on campus-wide committees that discuss issues pertinent to student-athlete well-being both academically and athletically.
The Berea College SAAC will serve 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 the achievements of our student-athletes.
