What is SAAC?
SAAC consists of representatives from each intercollegiate athletic team and the spirit squad. Each committee member is nominated by his/her respective coaching staff/training staff and asked to serve as their team's SAAC representatives. The committee meets one time every month during the academic year to discuss current developments within the NCAA, the Mountain West Conference and the University of Wyoming as well as to plan for upcoming SAAC initiatives, community service outreach and discuss any issues of concern that pop-up, for the UW Student-Athlete.
