STANLEY NAMED TO NCAA DIVISION III PRESIDENTS COUNCIL
OSWEGO -- SUNY Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley has been elected to a four-year term on the National Collegiate Athletics Association Division III Presidents Council.
"I am honored and excited by this invitation to join a group with such a far-ranging and important mission," Stanley said. "Oswego's students have a tradition of excelling in academics as well as athletic competition. So I applaud the council's mission of emphasizing and maximizing the overall educational experiences of student-athletes."
The 15-member Presidents Council, composed of chief executive officers of member colleges and universities, is the highest governing body in Division III. It oversees a Management Council and several committees that address divisional operations, budgets and priority issues such as student-athlete welfare, diversity and membership education and communication.
The NCAA's purpose to help members develop "the basis for consistent, equitable competition" and "to establish and maintain an environment in which a student-athlete's athletics activities are conducted as an integral part of the student-athlete's educational experience," according to the Division III philosophy statement.
Stanley's term will begin at the close of the NCAA Convention in January in Anaheim and will run through January 2007.
