Chancellor’s Task Force on Athletics and Academics issues its report

In December 2013, Chancellor Nicholas Dirks established the Task Force on Academics and Athletics, a 20-member panel he charged with the responsibility “to devise new means to ensure that our academic mission informs every part of our intercollegiate athletics programs.” He asked the group to report back with “a series of actionable recommendations to assist the campus in maximizing the academic performance of student-athletes and the overall quality of their campus experience.”

The task force’s report and recommendations were released today. Below are links to the report and other relevant materials, including a message to the campus community from Chancellor Dirks.
