The Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is an organization comprised of student-athletes from all varsity teams at GVSU. The goal of the committee is to inform all student-athletes, through their team representatives, of what is going on in the athletic department as well as campus-wide issues that directly affect student-athletes. The SAAC is made up of at least two representatives from each team. The committee meets once a month to discuss relevant issues, plan upcoming events, organize community projects, and to promote support amongst teams.
The SAAC has been responsible for originating programs such as Athletes Who Care (AWC), ensuring that all varsity team members (since 1999) who letter in their freshman year receive a varsity jacket, and re-designing the fourth year varsity letter blanket. The SAAC sends a representative to the GLIAC SAAC meeting each semester to discuss ideas with other schools in the conference.
