Summary

The inability of higher education institutions to self-regulate "big time" college sports has focused attention on issues such as academic integrity, gender equity in sports offerings, and students' academic progress towards degrees, and has resulted in increased oversight by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) on this important source of institutional revenue. There has also been a trend towards moving athletic operations away from faculty. Using a three-round Delphi survey technique, this study surveyed 15 athletic directors and 15 faculty senate presidents at leading NCAA Division I programs, asking the following question: "Please identify the methods, means, and techniques by which faculty should be involved in the administration or governance of intercollegiate athletics." It also asked for five or more specific ways to include faculty authority through an athletic council with power to make recommendations to a president. Twenty-three of the 30 participants identified 49 techniques by which faculty could be empowered in intercollegiate athletic governance. The strategies identified were largely traditional in nature, and included reviewing student academic support services; comparing graduation rates, retention, and academic performance of student-athletes to the general student population; and cooperative review of proposed NCAA legislation regarding academic policies.
