The Intercollegiate Athletics Department is intended to be an integral
component of the educational mission of the University. The Athletics
Department is managed consistent with the mission and focus of the
University. The University mission offers a context for how the program
prepares students to develop critical thinking and problem-solving
skills, to practice learning as a life-long activity, to be engaged and
contributing citizens, and to enhance the position and image of the
University locally, regionally, and nationally.
The program will be administered in a manner to ensure the amateur nature of athletics by responsibly, honestly and effectively recognizing and communicating that student-athletes are, first and foremost, students who possess academic abilities and attain personal growth objectives. The student shall be accorded due respect as a person and is expected to reflect the high academic and behavioral standards of the University. Intercollegiate athletics strives for success in competition while continuing to attract and retain students who succeed academically and athletically and whose careers after graduation are a tribute to them, UW-Green Bay and society.
The Intercollegiate Athletics Department embraces the Horizon League principles of sportsmanship and ethical conduct; is committed to the concept of equitable opportunity for all students and staff regardless of gender or ethnicity; and is administered to substantiate compliance with the University of Wisconsin System, UW-Green Bay, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Horizon League rules and regulations, which ensure institutional control and integrity.
