    Reasons for McKendree to join the
    NCAA Division II
 Our university continues to grow in every way. It is time to
  take the next growth step with our athletics program.
 The NCAA is a very recognizable and will help us in our
  recruiting efforts for both students and student-athletes.
 Based on this recognizability, NCAA membership will
  enhance the credibility and also the quality across the board
  of McKendree’s athletic programs as well as sport-related
  majors: Physical Education, Athletic Training, and Sport
  Management (under development).
 NCAA membership will further promote the identity of
  McKendree University in Southern Illinois.

    Reasons for McKendree to join the
    NCAA Division II continued
     Membership in the NCAA will open up opportunities
      for potential sponsors and advertisers.
     We feel confident that membership in the NCAA will
      help grow our university endowment fund and further
      encourage alumni and others to participate in our
      annual and capital fund-raising campaigns.
     On the athletic field of competition, NCAA
      membership will pit McKendree against high quality,
      regional and more universally recognized institutions.

        *The NAIA ban on post-season honors and championships is being appealed.

     NCAA Compliance
     A key difference of the NCAA from the NAIA is the compliance
         required by the NCAA for their rules and regulations. For
         example, the following are carefully controlled:
      Practice times,
      Squad size,
      Number of Scholarships,
      Number and gender of sports,
      Use of banned drugs and stimulants,
      Grades and eligibility, and
      Recruiting practices.
     NCAA has procedures in place to ensure compliance using self-
         reporting and onsite testing and inspections.
