What is SAAC?
The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) at the University of New Mexico is a dynamic group of student-athletes dedicated to providing a voice for the interests and concerns of the student-athletes. This committee serves as the student-athlete leadership group here at UNM. SAAC directs its energy in addressing areas such as academics, student-athlete welfare, community service, university relations and career development. Through these efforts, the committee hopes to foster camaraderie and unity between student-athletes, UNM administration and the surrounding community.
