Summary

This paper traces the regulation of intercollegiate athletics from the late 19th-century to the present and discusses current trends in the supervision of intercollegiate athletics. It examines the emergence of faculty control of athletics and the concept of faculty athletic committees in the late 1800s due to the inability or unwillingness of students to control their own athletic programs. The founding of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the early 1900s and the results of several inquiries into the nature of college athletics are reviewed. The activities of the American Council of Education (ACE), its Commission of Collegiate Athletics, and the Knight Foundation's Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics to develop minimum academic standards for college athletes are also discussed. The report concludes that in recent years there has been a concerted effort to restore integrity to intercollegiate athletics from within higher education, fueled largely by public criticism of college sports and the threat of governmental intervention. Such efforts have favored a return to institutional control, under uniform NCAA criteria, that would place accountability and responsibility for athletic programs under academically qualified campus personnel.
