Marsh to provide information at Nov. 12 CPUC meeting
Princeton has begun a year-long, campus-wide effort to study its athletics program as part of the NCAA Division I athletics certification program. The specific areas the self-study will cover are academic integrity, governance and commitment to rules compliance, and equity and student-athlete well-being.
President Shirley M. Tilghman has appointed University Counsel Clayton Marsh to chair the steering committee that will lead the self-study, which incorporates students, faculty and staff, including athletics department personnel.
Marsh will provide information on the self-study at the Monday, Nov. 12, meeting of the Council of the Princeton University Community. The meeting will begin at 4:30 p.m. in Betts Auditorium, School of Architecture, and all members of the University community are invited to attend.
Princeton completed its first NCAA certification self-study in 1998, and the current self-study will be the second in the certification process for the University. The purpose of the NCAA certification program is to help ensure the integrity of member institutions' athletics operations. The self-study provides opportunities for communication with the broader University community about athletics and how the experience of student-athletes might be improved.
