Through the NCAA Campus and Conference Services, NCAA member institutions and conference offices are able to request funding to cover the costs associated with providing their student-athletes and staff onsite leadership development programming.
Funding has previously been used in a variety of ways. Examples include, but are not limited to: professional development workshops for staff and administrators; SAAC retreats, meetings and workshops; student-athlete leadership academies; and teambuilding workshops for athletic teams and staffs.
Session topics should focus directly on leadership development. Past programming has focus on: branding; career development; conflict resolution; DiSC behavioral assessment; diversity education emotional intelligence; values; goal setting and action planning; leadership; SAAC; social media; and the Step UP! Bystander Intervention Program.
The first of two options allows schools or conference offices to make arrangements with a selected facilitator or speaker to conduct identified programming. Subsequently, the school or conference office may then request up to $2,000 to cover speaker fees only. [NOTE: Speaker travel expenses (e.g. hotel lodging, travel and meals) may not be covered by Campus and Conference Services funding.]
Secondly, schools or conference offices may also request the NCAA to arrange for a trained facilitator to present and facilitate selected workshop topics. Costs and arrangements associated with this option are covered up-front and managed by the NCAA.
If speaker funding or a facilitated topic/DiSC workshop are being requested, please submit an online application via NCAA Program Hub. Funding is available on a rolling basis until funding is depleted. Click here to access the online application submission form. [NOTE: Creating a login will be necessary to access Program Hub]
If only DiSC assessments are being requested, click here for instructions.
