Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence
The Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence aspires to provide exceptional support to Florida Atlantic University student-athletes and to be distinguished for student-athlete academic excellence.
The Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence partners with the student-athletes, the FAU community, and the FAU Athletic Department to promote student learning and student success. The SACAE provides a center which supports and encourages holistic student development, focusing on the student-athlete's individual needs and goals. The environment of SACAE is designed to enhance the growth of independent learners who graduate and become engaged members of our community.
PHILOSOPHICAL APPROACH TO WORKING WITH STUDENT-ATHLETES
The SACAE's Academic Athletic Counselors consistently challenge student-athletes to develop positive academic, professional, and personal skills that are not only beneficial during their academic careers but also in their lives beyond college. Academic Athletic Counselors are committed to maintaining the highest level of integrity and maintaining appropriate professional boundaries when interacting with and assisting student-athletes. Athletic Academic Counselors evaluate student-athletes individually and collaborate with the student-athletes to identify their specific needs and goals.
The Student-Athlete Center for Academic Excellence hires tutors and mentors each semester. This additional support staff is an integral part of the services provided to the student-athletes.
