Student Alumni Associates


Support the Mary Holtman-Reed
SAA Excellence Endowment

The Student Alumni Associates (SAA) is an organization that connects current UT students with alumni and prospective students. It is comprised of nearly 100 student leaders who come from various backgrounds and majors.

Founded in September 1969, SAA’s purpose is to improve the understanding of the role of the alumni association by educating and involving students in activities and events of the alumni association.

SAA aims to facilitate interaction between students and alumni and enhance the student experience by providing opportunities that foster a lifelong relationship with the University of Tennessee. Alongside the UT Knoxville Alumni Program, SAA strives to advance the university and enrich the lives of students and alumni.

SAA members are some of our most dedicated students preparing to become the next generation of alumni leaders. Eighty-six members represent the 2016–2017 Student Alumni Associates.
