"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:

Student Success - Connor Ronan (M. Lacrosse - leader) and Ginevra Czech (W. Lacrosse - leader)

-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.

Community Engagement - Jessica Wilson (Volleyball - SAAC co-chair) and Annie Dulman (W. Golf - leader)

-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.
