BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (June 30, 2022) — Sixty-five Southeastern Conference student-athletes representing all 14 SEC universities participated in a meeting of the SEC Student-Athlete Leadership Council at the SEC offices last weekend.

Meeting attendees include representatives from the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Football Leadership Council and Men’s and Women’s Basketball Leadership Council.

During the two-day meeting, the Council heard a leadership presentation from Clay Scroggins and participated in a mental health discussion with Nafis Ricks. The student-athletes were also updated on the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and discussed SAAC programming on SEC campuses. The agenda also included a conversation with SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey and updates on the SEC Council on Racial Equity and Social Justice and SEC and NCAA legislative items.

Student-Athlete Leadership Councils were introduced in 2016 for the sports of football and men’s and women’s basketball, which, in addition to SAAC, provide student-athletes with additional opportunities to engage with campus leaders and conference office staff. The councils serve as a conduit of communication to the conference office on issues related to student-athlete experience and student-athlete wellness.
