Our Priorities

Academics

Providing opportunities to earn a college degree is at the heart of our mission. Student-athlete graduation rates are the highest ever, with 80 percent earning their degrees.

Well-Being

We were founded to keep college sports safe. Today, we work hard to promote safety, excellence, and physical and mental well-being for student-athletes.

Fairness

All college athletes deserve a fair shot. We focus on respect, integrity and responsibility, both on and off the field, so that college sports prepare student-athletes for life.
