What is Student-Athlete Affairs?

The mission of the NCAA is to maintain intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of the campus educational program and the student-athlete as an integral part of the student body. With this in mind, Student-Athlete Affairs (SAA) was created to support the student-athlete development initiatives of NCAA member institutions and to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience within the context of higher education.

The goal of the SAA program is to enhance student development in each of the five commitment areas.

#1 - Commitment to Academic Excellence
To support the academic progress of the student-athlete toward intellectual development and graduation.

#2 - Commitment to Athletic Excellence
To build philosophical foundations for the development of athletics programs that are broad-based, equitable and dedicated to the well-being of the student-athlete.

#3 - Commitment to Personal Development
To support the development of a well-balanced lifestyle for student-athletes, encourage emotional well-being, leadership, personal growth and decision-making skills.

#4 - Commitment to Career Development
To encourage the student-athlete to develop and pursue career and life goals.

#5 - Commitment to Service
To engage the student-athlete in service to his or her campus and surrounding communities.
