"The Rollins College Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) brings together representatives from each of the college’s sports teams for the purpose of addressing student-athlete concerns and promoting a stronger connection between Rollins athletics and the larger campus community. The Rollins SAAC strives to sponsor and participate in activities that support the enrichment of the Rollins campus and the greater community. The Rollins SAAC hopes to integrate the experiences and talents of student-athletes into the college mission of educating students for global citizenship and responsible leadership."

"A few years ago, we moved away from 'officers' in the usual sense of the word to more of a leadership team. The leaders are the chairs for the four different teams the group determined as what they wanted to focus on this year," - SAAC Advisor Jude Wolbert
Those areas are:
-The mission of the student-athlete success focus group is to foster the total development of student-athletes by helping them reach their full potential both academically and personally. The group strives to allow student-athletes to transition to college life and maintain an exemplary level of student performance through peer support.
-The mission of the community engagement focus group is to foster relationships within the Winter Park and Orlando communities by promoting and providing opportunities for service and community involvement.
-The mission of the fundraising focus group is to raise awareness and funds for the Feed The Need initiative and Make-A-Wish Foundation, as well as working alongside and assisting our fellow focus groups in their individual fundraising goals.
-The mission of the school spirit focus group is to enrich the overall student experience by encouraging the support of fellow Tars and promoting various college sponsored events.
