Student Athlete Advisory Committee

Student Athlete Advisory Committee

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a student organization at Indian Hills Community College within the Athletic Department that is solely made up of intercollegiate student-athletes. College advisors facilitate discussions within the topics of leadership, campus engagement, community involvement, and student experience. SAAC also provides a space to generate a student-athlete voice on needs or concerns throughout campus.

SAAC's goal is to be a voice for Indian Hills' student-athletes while they strive to achieve greatness in the classroom, playing fields/courts and throughout the community. The SAAC Program wants all student-athletes experience at Indian Hills Community College to be not only successful but personally rewarding as well.
