Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)

The Northwood University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) was established to facilitate a healthy working relationship between Northwood athletes and Northwood faculty members.

In 2013-2014, Northwood's SAAC teamed up with the SAAC from Ferris State to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The goal was to help make Clark’s dream come true! Clark is a nine-year-old Midland boy with cancer who’s dream was to attend the 2014 Super Bowl. The goal was met and Clark attended the 2014 Super Bowl in New York!


The mission of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to enhance the total student-athlete experience by promoting opportunity, protecting student-athlete welfare and fostering a positive student-athlete image.


Any athlete interested in joining the NU SAAC or donating towards Make-A-Wish, please contact his or her head coach.
