Student-Athlete Advisory Committee



Mission Statement

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (S.A.A.C.) is made up of representatives from each of the varsity teams at SUNYIT.  Our goal is to provide student-athletes a unified voice in communications among the student-athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators when addressing issues designed to improve the student-athlete experience.  S.A.A.C. also seeks to promote growth and education through sports participation, provide feedback and insight into athletic department issues, build a sense of community within the athletic program, organize community service efforts, serve as a vehicle for student-athlete representation on other campus-wide committees and promote a positive student-athlete image on campus.   


The S.A.A.C. will operate within the athletic department under the advisement of a SUNYIT staff member. The views of its members will convey those of all SUNYIT student-athletes.


Each varsity sport will have two representatives on the committee. If someone can not make it to a meeting they will find someone from their team to replace them for that meeting. If anyone is interested in joining the S.A.A.C, please contact Dan Benz at (315)792-7520 or Erin Schurr at (315)792-7834.
