NCAA Statement on 2019 College Sport Racial and Gender Report Card

“Although we are pleased to see increases within our membership around hiring ethnic minorities and women in the 2019 College Sport Racial and Gender Report Card, there is more work to be done. Some numbers are moving in the right direction, and many schools and conferences have signed the NCAA Presidential Pledge, which is their public commitment to achieving racial and ethnic diversity and gender equity in athletics hiring. It is imperative that senior officials maintain intentional and inclusive hiring practices in athletics.

Additionally, we are pleased to receive high marks at the NCAA national office for diversity initiatives and leadership programs and for our hiring practices for executive, senior and professional positions. It is important that the national office models the behavior it expects its membership to pattern.”
