Athletic Advisory Board

faculty handbook


The Board assists and advises the Director of Athletics in the exercise of institutional responsibility and control of intercollegiate athletics. The guiding concern of the Board is the growth and development of students who participate in intercollegiate athletics. The Board both advises the Director on policy issues brought to the Board's attention by the Director and also initiates discussion on issues of concern to the faculty or administration.

The Board consists of nine members:

  • five elected from the full-time faculty; three from The College of Arts and Sciences and two from the professional schools
  • four appointed members, chosen by the President in consultation with the faculty athletics representative, from the faculty, academic, or academic support staff.

Members are elected or appointed to stagger three-year terms. The faculty athletics representative, a full-time faculty member who is appointed by and who reports to the President, chairs the Board.
