Text of March 30, 2013 Email from
Michael G. Bowen, Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics Chair
attached a copy of the 2013 COIA Steering Committee Report to the COIA
membership. Please share this with your senates.
of today, we are still waiting to hear from the NCAA on any next steps
regarding the proposal we sent to the NCAA about this date last month.
We hope that proposal is the beginning of some fruitful conversations
about improving faculty voice not only in athletics matters but in the
full governance of our universities. A copy of that proposal, and
related documents, are a part of the 2013 report attached to this email.
let me know if you have any comments on the report, or if there are any
campus athletics (or other) issues, that might affect many if not all
of our universities, you would like COIA to put on this year's agenda.
We see the remainder of 2013 as having the potential to bring important
changes to our universities, and we can provide an excellent forum for
discussing those matters.
G. Bowen, Ph.D., COIA Chair
of South Florida
