Statement from Penn State Athletics on NCAA Governance Structure
Aug. 8, 2014 UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -
We at Penn State fully support the governance structure and autonomy provisions passed this week by the NCAA Division I Board of Directors.
At the core of the decision is the ability to provide optimal care and enhanced opportunities for student-athlete success in the classroom and on the field of play. Anything that puts students first is to be applauded. Like many things in college athletics, there will be costs associated with change. It will require that we exhibit extreme discipline and establish a prioritization based on our values. All of this will be healthy for the enterprise, both at Penn State and nationally, and good for our student-athletes.
