Along with hard-work and dedication both on the field and in the classroom, the William and Mary Athletics Department and its student-athletes also strive to make a positive impact in the community. Every school year, various Tribe athletics programs volunteer their time and energy in different capacities throughout Williamsburg and the Hampton Roads area. Among the dozens of activities, Tribe teams have read at local schools, volunteered at youth camps, participated in community-based service projects and collected food, clothing and money for non-profit organizations.

Among the leaders in the Tribe's efforts in the community is the Student Athletic Advisory Council (SAAC). The SAAC's goal is to provide a communications link between student athletes and the athletic administration, while promoting and supporting the athletic department, college and local community. The Council is composed of two representatives from each varsity team and the cheerleading team.  Selected athletic administrators are non-voting members of the Council.  

The following is are some of the community service activities for Tribe Athletics:
