NCAA Data Summit

The NCAA Data Summit is an annual event designed for athletics administrators at all levels. The goals of the summit are to increase awareness of how data is being used in intercollegiate athletics and higher education, provide attendees with an opportunity to discuss data-driven decision-making with their peers and foster an ecosystem of data users in the intercollegiate athletics administration community.
