Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

Mission Statement

The mission of the University of Denver Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by monitoring student-athlete welfare, promoting engagement, and fostering a positive student-athlete image. In doing so, the result of bettering our experience, improving social and professional connections, and bettering the image of all student-athletes is achieved. 


The purpose of SAAC is to provide varsity student-athletes the opportunity to communicate effectively with the University of Denver (DU) athletic administration, coaches, and staff. The SAAC offers input on the rules, regulations and policies that affect student-athlete's lives including the improvement of academic, athletic, and social experiences at DU. It also encourages community involvement through service projects, engaging with student organizations, and development efforts. The Committee encourages unity, common purpose and camaraderie between all student-athletes allowing them to maximize their intercollegiate athletic experience from an athletic, social, and professional standpoint.
