About SAAC

The Student Affairs Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a University standing committee charged with advising the administration on the type, amount and expenditure of compulsory fees for student services as stated in Section 54.503 of the Texas Education Code.

The SAAC conducts its meetings in accordance with Section 54.5033 of the Texas Education Code and will publicize the type, hour, place and subject/agenda of all meetings. These notices will be provided at least 72 hours before a meeting is convened and will be posted on the university’s BRONC notes and university monitors.

The SAAC shall conduct its meetings with quorum of at least five voting members. If a quorum is not reached or maintained, members may continue to meet and discuss agenda items but may not take any action.

A member of the campus community is allowed to present written and/or oral testimony, for a reasonable amount of time as determined by the committee chair, on any subject listed on the meeting announcement. Testimony on the subjects not listed on the agenda will not be allowed.

While the meetings are open to the public, visitors to the meetings must register their intentions to testify with the committee chair at least 15 minutes prior to the convening of the meeting. Registration must include the name of the person submitting testimony and the agenda item/subject to be addressed.

Final deliberations of the committee will be held after registered testimony is received and will be held in closed session. The final recommendation made by the SAAC will be recorded and made public.
