Mission Statement

The mission of the University of Kentucky Student-Athlete Advisory Committee shall be consistent with the overall mission of the University of Kentucky Athletics Department. The student-athletes must be the heart of the program. We recognize that every student-athlete has goals that are fulfilled by personal athletic success and personal academic success. There must be a balance that ensures that the student-athlete is provided with the opportunity to obtain these goals.

The mission of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is to assist in the creation of an environment where all student-athletes have the opportunity to maximize their academic, personal and social growth and improve their post-college quality of life.

The University of Kentucky Student-Athlete Advisory Committee shall fulfill this mission by:

  • Improving communication between the UKAA and the student-athletes.
  • Acting a liaison between the athletics administration and the student-athletes, SAAC will provide student-athletes with a voice in the UKAA decision making process.
  • Improving the organization and by the involvement among student-athletes in community and campus issues, as well as alert student-athletes to issues concerning them.
  • Serving as a liaison to the Southeastern Conference (SEC) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
