Division III Presidents and Chancellors Forum and Luncheon January 15, 2010 Welcome and Remarks Division III Identity Initiative Presidential Leadership Presidential Leadership Background • The NCAA established greater emphasis on presidential leadership with federation in 1997. • The NCAA Division III Philosophy Statement is currently silent on the issue of presidential leadership. Presidential Leadership Background • The Division III membership survey indicates that only 20 percent of the Division III ADs report directly to a president or chancellor. • The PC and PAG desire a greater strategic role for presidents in divisional governance, with less emphasis on operational details. Presidential Leadership Recommendations (2010 Convention) • Specifically address in the philosophy statement expectations for presidential leadership and involvement at the campus, conference and national levels. • Establish a more focused "presidential" grouping. Presidential Leadership Recommendations (2011 Convention) • Consider establishing greater strategic focus and legislative authority within the Division III governance structure for presidents, as well as for the PC in consultation with PAG. Presidential Leadership Examples could include: • Establish group (e.g., joint PC/MC subcommittee) to determine which proposals need PC review. • Permit MC to directly sponsor legislation related to administrative and operational issues. Presidential Leadership Examples, continued: • Add two vice presidents with athletics oversight to the MC. • Explore proposals to establish key legislative provisions (e.g., financial aid) as “division dominant.” Presidential Leadership Examples, continued: • Require each conference to confirm the regular meeting of its presidential oversight body. Update on Presidential Search 2010 Convention Key Legislative Proposals OPEN FORUM Thanks for attending!
