Sportsmanship and Game Environment Working GroupThe NCAA governance staff is establishing a working group to enhance the Division III sportsmanship and game environment initiatives and identify best practices and provide tools and resources for member institutions and conferences.  The working group would consist of nine to 11 members and to the extent possible, the working group will be representative of the Division III membership (e.g., public and private, geographical) and be gender and ethnically diverse.  If you are interested in volunteering for the working group, please email Jay Jones.
