Members of this commission share ideas and best practices for advising student-athletes at the NCAA Division I/II/III level, community colleges, Canadian institutions, and NAIA schools. Commission members include advisors who work solely with student-athletes as well as those who see student-athletes as a part of a larger advising audience.
Current topics of discussion often include NCAA rules (which may change on an annual basis), academic eligibility, career counseling, technological advancements, ethical issues in sport and/or athletic academic advising, transfer concerns, and life skills development of student-athletes. As advisors to a unique population with a significant time commitment outside the classroom, commission members often serve as a liaison with faculty and other advising offices on their home campus. Both beginning and seasoned advisors interested in working with student-athletes are welcome and encouraged to join the Advising Student Athletes Commission
