    What is SAAC?
    Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a leadership group consisting of student-athletes representing all sports at Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech SAAC provides insight on the student-athlete experience and offers input on the rules, regulations and policies that effect student-athletes' lives on NCAA member institution campuses. SAAC members serve as a conduit of communication among student-athletes, coaches and athletic administrators in an effort to improve the student-athlete experience and promote growth and education through sports participation.

    Presently, there are separate national SAACs for NCAA Divisions I, II and III. NCAA legislation mandates that all member institutions have SAACs on their respective campuses. Further, NCAA legislation requires that all member conferences have SAACs.
