Statement from Mark Emmert on the passing of Dr. James Frank

“We extend our deepest sympathies to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr. James Frank. Throughout his memorable career, Dr. Frank spearheaded positive and impactful change, "championing diversity and inclusion in college sports. He holds a special place in NCAA history, serving as both the first African-American and the first college president to hold the positions of secretary-treasurer and membership president. We join others in mourning his loss while also honoring his legacy.”
