More Information About SAB
Welcome to Indiana University's Student Athletic Board! SAB has been an integral part of the IU Athletic Department and student body since 1956. The organization was founded by then University President Herman B Wells and the Athletic Director Frank Allen. Over time, the organization has grown and its responsibilities within the athletic department have also continued to expand. The Student Athletic Board was created to give the athletic department a direct link to the students and vice versa. In return, The Student Athletic Board provides students the opportunity to be an active part of the planning, organizing, and successful completion of athletic events.
Any Indiana University student can become a mass member. As a member of SAB, there are many opportunities available for you. The roles of SAB are very diverse. Some of them include fan promotions during Soccer, Volleyball, and Baseball games, organizing campus activities like Homecoming and Parent's Weekend, having fun at our Football student tailgates, and simply cheering on the Hoosier teams in their respective student sections. These are just a few of the tasks that SAB performs to assist the Indiana University Athletic Department and all 24 Varsity Sports.
The organization relies on the dedication of its 16 Directors, approximately 100 Committee Chairs and over 1200 Mass Members to carry out its responsibilities. Each varsity sport at IU has a director whom is responsible for making sure that the head coach's needs are met. The director also works to increase student and community attendance at athletic events (many of them are free with a student ID) by working to promote special events with the Marketing Department within Indiana University Athletics.
We encourage you to take a few moments and fill out the "Mass Member Application," which automatically signs you up to receive weekly emails containing information about how you can volunteer for the Student Athletic Board. For information on each Director and their respective area please visit the "Board of Directors" page. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or for more general information about the Student Athletic Board.
The mission of SAB is to be "The Spirit Behind IU Athletics." This is accomplished by encouraging student involvement in all IU athletic events. As an SAB Mass Member, you become a part of the tremendous and exciting history surrounding Indiana University and IU Athletics.
