Each academic year, the TU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (TUSAAC) is selected. The Director of Student Development for Athletics is the liaison for the athletic department and TU SAAC. This committee is comprised of student-athlete representatives (2) from all of The University of Tulsa's intercollegiate athletic programs. The purpose of the committee is to provide direct input into athletic department decisions that affect student-athletes. The committee meets twice each month during the academic year to talk with athletic administrators about issues of interest to student-athletes. The committee is also instrumental in coordinating the community outreach program for student-athletes. Student-athlete representatives volunteer and/or are selected by their head coach to participate.
