The Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB) serves as a liaison between students at Cedarville University and the Office of the Vice President for Academics. SAAB advises the vice president on issues related to student success and intercedes on behalf of students when appropriate.
SAAB consists of two members from each academic department/school. Faculty from each department/school nominate highly qualified students during a student’s sophomore year, allowing each student to serve for two years on SAAB. Because its members are excellent students from a variety of majors, SAAB is uniquely suited to advise the Vice President for Academics. Such insight takes a variety of forms, but ultimately helps to strengthen a Cedarville education.
SAAB has two main responsibilities:
- Be available to the Vice President for Academics as a means of obtaining and understanding student opinions.
- Provide students with opportunities to voice their opinions, concerns, and suggestions regarding academic matters.
- Nominate the faculty and staff members of year. After general student body nominations are completed, SAAB interviews finalists and votes to determine the winner.
- Attend student grade appeals interviews, as dictated by the Cedarville Student Handbook.
