experience and seeks to provide positive and enriching programs that complement and
reinforce the educational pursuits, academic success, and athletic excellence of student-athletes.

a student, while at the same time realizing the dividends gained through athletic
competition. Integrity, sense of community, teamwork, camaraderie, sportsmanship,
self-respect, self-confidence, leadership, and loyalty all enliven and enrich the
life of each student who participates in intercollegiate athletics.
