DI Strategic Summit participants announced

Attendees chosen due to governance involvement, leadership in affiliated organizations

A group of college presidents, athletics administrators, faculty, students and conference commissioners will convene in Indianapolis Aug. 4-5 to build the foundation for the future of college sports.

Participants were invited because of positions they hold in the Division I governance structure or affiliated organizations.

The Division I Strategic Summit participants include all members of the Board of Directors (including the student-athlete, athletics director, faculty athletics representative and senior woman administrator who serve on that group); Presidential Forum members from conferences that do not have representation on the board; the chair and vice chair of the Council; the chairs of the seven standing Council committees, the Committee on Academics and the Committee on Infractions; leaders from affiliated organizations who serve on the Council and the Board of Governors members from Divisions II and III.

Each strategic planning group will present background and analysis of its topic area to the summit participants in advance to help inform the discussion and ultimate creation of principles to guide the division’s decision-making in the future.
