Johns Hopkins Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC)
Mission Statement The Johns Hopkins University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is a student run organization that serves as the voice of over 700 varsity student athletes. Our purpose is fourfold: 1.) to provide insight and feed back to the athletic department, centennial conference, and NCAA regarding the student athlete experience; 2.) to improve visibility and school spirit; 3.) to promote and provide opportunities for service and community involvement; 4.) to increase programming for student-athletes.

Johns Hopkins University Mentoring Program (JUMP) SAAC has teamed up with a local Baltimore City Charter School, Afya, to help promote education and health. Students from Afya come to JHU on a monthly basis for mentoring sessions, to play games, and to learn about a sport and college. JUMP fills a void in the student athlete experience and affords student athletes the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in the community. Through the partnership with Afya, JUMP enables the Hopkins athletes to affect positives change in Baltimore by mentoring, developing friendships and playing sports with sports with inner city youth.
