Intercollegiate Athletics

The IAC serves as a vital connection between the athletics department and the campus-at-large. The IAC can promote communication, gathering feedback on athletic and related academic matters from a wide array of campus constituencies, and in turn helping to educate the broader community about what we learn. The IAC can play a significant role in helping to align the practices around the academic lives of student-athletes with our campus's values. In matters outside of academics the IAC can give useful feedback while building understanding of the athletic department's mission and practices in the broader community, which can be relied upon at some critical junctures. The IAC can also initiate, facilitate and increase awareness of cooperative athletic-academic ventures.
