The Student Academic Affairs Board (SAAB), established in 1982, is a unique part of your student government. SAAB is composed of one student representative from each academic discipline. The Board meets weekly to discuss issues of academic importance to the student body: curriculum matters, the academic calendar, the senior capstone/keystone experience, faculty retention, general education requirements, etc. Additionally, SAAB sponsors a peer tutoring program, in which students can receive two free hours of tutoring per week per class.
SAAB also sponsors a competitive grant program for the following:
• Student Motivated Research
• Attendance at Conferences
• Visiting Scholar Programs
• Performances or Artistic Displays
