Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Georgia Gwinnett College Office of Athletics has formed the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).

The committee is a student-athlete-driven group that works to accomplish its mission of “Enhancing the total student-athlete experience by fostering UNITY among all GGC student-athletes, developing a HEART for our community and cultivating healthy COMMUNICATION between student-athletes and the Athletics administration.”

The committee is overseen by Assistant Athletics Director Dr. Ian Potter and coordinates on-campus events, efforts in the community and promotes an atmosphere of effective communication.

Committee members serve through the spring semester each year, whereupon new members are elected for one-year terms.
