SAC members at Saluki Alumni Plaza


The Student Alumni Council (SAC) is a registered student organization under the SIU Alumni Association and serves as a service organization designed to act as a common link between students, alumni, administration, faculty, and friends of the University.

Students who are selected to participate in SAC will become ambassadors for the Association and will be one step ahead in understanding what it means to be a #SalukiForLife. They will have the opportunity to grow professionally and gain lasting friendships; network with alumni; provide service to the University and community; earn incentives through their volunteerism for the SIU Alumni Association.
