Division II Strategic Plan


The Division II Presidents Council in April 2015 formally adopted an ambitious and responsible six-year strategic plan that builds upon Division II’s unique attributes and a position of fiscal strength to guide future decisions.

The plan supports Division II’s balanced and inclusive approach that affords student-athletes the opportunity to explore their varied academic and social interests, to grow as productive citizens and to contribute to their communities.

The plan is designed to:

  • Produce student-athletes who graduate, who exhibit leadership, who engage with their communities and who have acquired the skills they need to maintain healthy and productive lifestyles.
  • Help Division II schools and conferences create engaged and high-functioning athletics operations and compliance programs.
  • Promote diverse and inclusive environments within all levels of intercollegiate athletics.
  • Enhance the game day and championships experience for student-athletes.
  • Demand fiscal responsibility at the local, conference, regional and national levels.
  • Respect the division’s past, celebrate membership as a destination of choice, and enhance the public’s knowledge and appreciation of what the division represents.

The following summary reports for the five Strategic Positioning Outcome areas help track the plan’s implementation.
