Athletes find their voice

For the first time, the Atlantic 10 Conference will invite athletes to attend conference meetings, reflecting a national trend of athletes increasingly taking part in the decision-making process.

Playing it forward

Student-athletes have a lot on their plates, but they believe in giving back and, even more importantly, they are making the time to do it. In addition to year-round community outreach efforts and partnerships with organizations like Make-A-Wish and the Special Olympics, NCAA schools take special time during the holiday season to give back to those around them.

Born to give back

Enforcement staffer Diane Dennis was taught from a young age about the importance of helping others. She lives that lesson every day.

The NCAA’s academic and membership affairs staff has been providing Christmas presents – with a personal touch – to a new family every year.

Fall championships – the pursuit of excellence

The NCAA hosts 89 championships across 23 sports each year – 22 of which take place during the fall. From national office staff members to committee members and volunteers, many hands go into making championship events a success.

Inside the Division II Fall Festival

It never gets old

Longtime North Central College cross country coach Al Carius reflects on four decades of championship experiences, including 15 cross country and track and field national titles.

Building the spotlight

Kristin Fasbender never took part in a national championship as a student-athlete, but she made a career out of coordinating them. She is now in her 15th year as a member of the NCAA championships group.
