Transcript NCAA: Serving Higher Education Now in its 77th year of service, the National Collegiate Athletic Association continues to meet the demands of its member institutions. While serving the nation's colleges and universities, the NCAA is the voice of intercollegiate athletics. A call for stricter control of college football by President Theodore Roosevelt because of the violence in the game brought together 13 institutions in 1905, formulating the original communications base for college athletics. This initial body called itself the Intercollegiate Athletic Association and was officially constituted March 3 1, 1906. In 1910, the name was changed to the National Collegiate Athletic Association. More than seven progressive decades have molded this original 13-member body into a membership today of more than 900 colleges, universities, conferences and affiliated organizations. Administration and rules interpretation occupied early efforts of the organization. Shortly after World War II, the NCAA adopted legislative and executive powers, changing its function into one dealing with virtually all issues concerned with intercollegiate athletics. Many things have become associated with the NCAA during its colorful history. Highest priority goes to the service it provides to its members, acting as the true "voice" of college athletics today. Each January the NCAA membership comes together at the annual Convention to review, propose and amend legislation. The Convention presents the opportunity for the nation's institutions of higher learning to speak and act on athletic matters on the national level. Acting in the best interests of its membership, the NCAA strives to perform these specific functions among its many other responsibilities: • Conducts 42 annual National Collegiate Championships in 19 men's sports for three separate divisions. Three championships (Division I, Division II and Division III) are held in baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, swimming, tennis, outdoor track and wrestling. Two championships are staged in gymnastics, lacrosse and ice hockey. Fencing, rifle, skiing, indoor track, volleyball and water polo hold single National Collegiate Championships, while football is contested in Divisions I-AA, II and III. The NCAA is conducting 31 women's championships «* -M • 3-^r1 NCAA national office in the 1982-83 academic year in addition to the 42 held for men. Women's championships will be held in all three divisions in basketball, cross country, field hockey, softball, swimming, tennis, outdoor track and volleyball. Two championships (Division I and Division II) will be staged in gymnastics, while fencing, golf, lacrosse, soccer and indoor track will hold single National Collegiate Championships. The National Collegiate Championship dates back to 1883 in tennis; and during this 100-year history, more than 13,000 student-athletes have earned the coveted title of "National Collegiate Champion." • Maintains 23 men's sports committees, including 14 men's rules committees to formulate, copyright and publish rules of play for the government of collegiate sports. Members of these and many other committees, including 16 women's sports/rules committees, are elected by representatives of member institutions at the annual Convention. • Publishes a tabloid newspaper 46 times per year, rules books in 12 sports, record books in football and basketball and various other publications. • Collects, compiles and distributes the official statistics of college football, basketball and baseball in men's sports, and basketball and softball in women's sports. • Conducts studies as a means of developing solutions to athletic problems. • Represents the membership in legislative and regulatory matters on the state and Federal levels. • Annually selects the College Athletics Top Ten and the Theodore Roosevelt ("Teddy") Award —the Association's highest honor. • Administers an honors program which annually awards 90 postgraduate scholarships to recognize outstanding senior student-athletes who have excelled in the classroom as well as athletics. This scholarship is for $2,000. The program has provided $1,784,000 to 1,354 recipients since its inception in the 1964-65 academic year. • Promotes and participates in international sports planning and competition through membership in the United States Olympic Committee, Amateur Basketball Association of the USA, Track and Field Association of the USA, and the United States Baseball, Gymnastics and Wrestling Federations. • Maintains more than SO full-time staff members at its national headquarters in Mission, Kansas, under the supervision of Executive Director Walter Byers.
