SAFAC is comprised of thirteen voting committee members, a non-voting Chair, and one non-voting advisor. The voting committee members include the Student Government delegate, a delegate from each class (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior), a delegate of the Federation of Club Sports, a delegate from any Greek Letter, a delegate who represents Service and Leadership interests, two delegates who represent Multicultural/International interests, and three delegates from any University of Miami registered student organization. All SAFAC members embrace the principles of honesty, fairness, and integrity. They protect the interests of all student organizations by ensuring that the decisions they make are in the best interests of all parties involved, especially the students at the University of Miami. SAFAC members do not make arbitrary judgments. They look at the big picture and make decisions that will benefit the entire university community. They especially keep in mind that their decisions ultimately decide what co-curricular life at the University will be.

Each registered student organization is assigned a "SAFAC Liaison" : click here for a complete listing.
