Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) consists of representatives from each varsity team and is run by the student-athletes. It is the goal of SAAC to be the student-athlete voice to the athletic administration; provide a bridge between the student-athletes and the Brown community; to undertake Student-Athlete Advisory Committee projects which will benefit student-athletes and the community; and to represent Brown University student-athletes and what they stand for. All student-athletes are encouraged to speak with their team's representative and get involved in the various projects the group is involved with. In the past, the group has focused on such issues as community service, student-athlete welfare, career development and publicity. Each year, however, the group decides together where their focus is going to lie. They examine the current issues facing student-athletes at Brown and focus in on the areas they feel they can impact. Now in its ninth year, SAAC continues to be united and gain a more powerful voice. The strong leadership and focus they have in place will strive to improve the lives of student-athletes on campus and in the community. It is certain that they will maintain the level of accomplishment they achieved last year and will continue to establish new and meaningful programs to focus on. If you would like to become involved with SAAC and their projects, see your SAAC representative or coach. To find out more about SAAC or to get involved, you can also contact the current Presidents for 2017-18: Michael Russo '18 (wrestling) and Bri Irons '18 (women's lacrosse).

The SAAC administrator is Carolan Norris (401-863-3052).
