Welcome to the Illinois Tech Student-Athletic Advisory Committee Webpage

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is made up of representatives from each of the 19 varsity sports. The committee meets twice a month to discuss issues raised by student-athletes, coordinate community service and educational opportunities, and organize social activities surrounding varsity games and events. This advisory group serves as a voice for the student-athlete population.

As members of Illinois Tech's SAAC we strive to build a sense of unity among student-athletes and the university while fostering leadership, active participation, and professional development on campus and in the local community.
