The Association is at a critical juncture, and the decision to return to an in-person format is endorsed by the governing committees for the NCAA divisions and member input from post-Convention surveys. The NCAA Woman of the Year Award will be given out during the Convention for the first time this year. The majority of the events will be broadcast.
Every year, the NCAA Convention brings together presidents, athletics directors, campus and conference administrators, and student-athlete leaders from all three divisions to conduct business, exchange best practices for assisting student-athletes, talk about recent developments in college sports, connect with peers, and recognize the Association’s top performers.
Starting on Wednesday and running through Thursday afternoon, a comprehensive schedule of educational activities will be provided on-site. Key concerns for all participants, including mental health, student athlete benefits, diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging, will be covered. On-site education programs will be filmed and made available to NCAA members following the Convention, even if there won’t be any virtual offers during the Convention week.
