Summary

The report outlines general principles underlying faculty responsibility to ensure the integrity of the student athlete's educational experience and the procedures through which a faculty member should exercise that responsibility. The policy statement addresses the general allocation of authority in the governance of athletics, emphasizing the obligation of the faculty in ensuring academic primacy in an institution's athletics programs. A section on general principles identifies the following: the importance of full disclosure of information about the athletic program, the primacy of faculty responsibility for the athlete's educational experience, the faculty's role in policymaking in other aspects of the athletic program, and the institution's relationship with outside regulatory bodies. Suggested mechanisms for faculty participation include oversight of the educational experiences of athletes, institutional policy-making on athletics, and policy-making by outside bodies. The conclusion stresses that the faculty authority to establish and maintain general academic standards entails faculty responsibility to assure specific application of these standards to student athletes. A dissenting opinion encouraging the appointment by the American Association of University Professors of a committee to prepare suggestions for fundamental reform is attached. (SM)
