Athletic Council Commitment

The Tarleton State athletic council has made a strong commitment to help each student-athlete be competitive on the field, and more importantly, in the classroom.

The council wants to use this website to help communicate to the faculty about the ongoing commitment by the athletic department to increase academic rigor. The council also wants the faculty members to know the athletic department is actively supporting the faculty to assure that student-athletes are meeting their academic obligations.

There are several other things the council would like to express through this website, such as the NCAA academic eligibility and standards Tarleton State abides by, correcting false perceptions about the athletic department and student-athletes and to communicate relevant academically-oriented changes to the NCAA guidelines.

The council is made up of faculty representing faculty, staff and students who are themselves concerned and committed to assure academic rigor of student-athletes.
