The administration and staff of the Department of Athletics espouses a student-centered philosophy, which ranks academic achievement as the number one priority for its student-athletes.
Toward this end, the Department of Athletics is committed to providing a comprehensive and inclusive intercollegiate and intramural athletics program for men and women, which further promotes the academic, sportsmanship, and total development of the student-athletes.
