Division III Athletics Direct Report Institute

NCAA Division III is pleased to offer the third annual Athletics Direct Report (ADR) Institute at the 2018 NCAA Convention in Indianapolis.  The purpose of the program is to engage Division III ADRs in best practices to oversee and manage athletics departments and to improve the relationships between ADRs and their presidents, athletics directors and conference commissioners.  Program content will focus on enhancing the effectiveness of the ADR at the campus, conference and national levels. Institute session topics will include athletics budgeting; managing athletics personnel; student-athlete well-being; relationship building; conference office engagement; NCAA governance and philosophy; and NCAA committee service and resources. The two-day program includes both networking opportunities and interactive discussions with ADR peers and other expert presenters.  Each ADR participant will receive a registration fee waiver to the NCAA Convention to continue their professional development.
