Like a sports car, a collegiate athletics program has a number of moving parts, all needing to operate at peak performance to ensure a successful student athlete experience. What are the fundamentals senior campus administrators need to understand to be able to tune up the enterprise? When a challenge surfaces, senior campus administrators must be able to assist their Athletics Directors in fixing the problems in a way that aligns with their institutional missions as well as NCAA rules and regulations.
This Virtual Institute lays the foundation for ethical supervision focused on the student-athlete experience. Able to be taken as a standalone program or as part of the Collegiate Athletics for Senior Leaders Certificate Program, participants will earn what tools you have at your disposal, including best practices and approaches to support your Athletics Director. Is your institution sending clear messages to the campus community about what it values when it comes to athletics? Is your Athletics Director hiring the right people who align with those values? Are the student-athletes clear on the deliverables the coach (and, by extension), the institution promised them as a recruit?
