Student Academic Advisory Board (SAAB)

Student Academic Advisory Board logo

What is SAAB?

The Student Academic Advisory Board is a student-led organization that reports to Vice-President for Academics. It consists of two representatives from each academic department that represents and reports student comments, concerns, and questions about academics at Cedarville University, among other responsibilities.

For more information or if you have any questions, contact the Student Academic Advisory Board:

SAAB Membership

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’s Role

SAAB has four 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.
