Vanderbilt seeks community feedback as part of NCAA re-certification
Vanderbilt officials are asking for feedback from the campus community as the university undergoes the NCAA’s athletics certification for Division I schools.
The university has completed the first step toward certification – a self-study during which schools are required to evaluate their effectiveness in developing student athletes academically, athletically and socially; ensuring that participation in NCAA sports plays a proper role within the university’s mission and to identify areas for improvement.
The self-study results are outlined in a draft report online.
Members of the community are invited to view and offer comment on the report as part of the certification process.
Members of the Vanderbilt community can also offer feedback during an information session Monday, March 28, at 1p.m. in Room 216/220 of Sarratt Student Center.
The NCAA requires that Division I institutions complete the certification process about once every 10 years. The program is designed to ensure the NCAA’s commitment to integrity in intercollegiate athletics with a goal of opening the matters of athletics to a broader community, setting standards or operating principles for the operation of Division I athletics programs, and putting sanctions in place for those institutions that fail to conduct a comprehensive self-study or fail to correct problems.
