What is SALC?
Franklin & Marshall College’s Student-Athlete Leadership Council (SALC) is a council made up of approximately 100 student-athlete representatives. SALC organizes events to increase community involvement, fundraise, and boost DIP pride. Through these events, the organization contributes to the local area and enhances the student-athlete experience. SALC provides athletes the opportunity to further develop valuable leadership skills and become an integral part of the school and Lancaster communities.
SALC Mission Statement
To develop leadership qualities in Franklin & Marshall College student-athletes, establish leadership roles in local communities, and inspire teamwork and leadership.
SALC Inclusion Statement
All student-athletes and members of the Franklin & Marshall community are welcome to SALC meetings held every other Tuesday at 11:30 am.
Presently, there are separate national SALCs for NCAA Divisions I, II and III. NCAA legislation mandates that all member institutions have SALCs on their respective campuses. Further, NCAA legislation requires that all member conferences have SALCs.
SALC’s key initiatives include:
Track-or-Treat: An event for youth to trick-or-treat on Halloween night in the safe environment of the College's Alumni Sports & Fitness Center.
Leadership Workshops: Each year, SALC hosts or runs various leadership workshops.
Diplomat Cup: A friendly competition between teams to celebrate all our student-athletes do when not competing. Points are earned for team GPA, community service, attendance at SALC meetings, attendance at home athletic events, and attendance at other campus events.
FPS Appreciation Event: Annual event during which athletes invite professors and professional staff members to a reception in appreciation of their support of F&M athletics.
Brother-Sister Teams: Each team is paired with another of the opposite season. Brother-sister teams work together during the Track-or-Treat event and make an effort to support one another throughout the year.
Concessions: Organize concessions for all home games held on Tylus Field, Shadek Stadium or in Mayser Gymnasium raises money to support SALC endeavors.
