Barton Student-Athlete Advisory Committee
The purpose of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is to promote the welfare of student-athletes at Barton College. The committee will provide a forum to enhance and facilitate communication for student-athletes within the institution, develop leadership skills, encourage academic success, assist in NCAA rules education, promote sportsmanship at intercollegiate athletic events and promote community service.
The Committee includes two representatives from each of Barton’s athletic teams.
SAAC members will be asked to review proposed NCAA Division II legislation to be considered at the NCAA Convention in January and comment as to the impact of each proposal on student-athlete welfare and a suggest voting yes or no. Committee members will also act to communicate with teams they represent, sharing ideas with them from SAAC meetings and taking information and concerns from teammates to the committee. In the broad context of the NCAA Division II philosophy of Life in Balance, service on the SAAC is intended to be a significant leadership opportunity.
Advisor for the committee is Andrea Roca, Director of Compliance.
