Miami is certified by NCAA

Miami again has been certified by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association).

The classification means Miami is operating its athletics program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the association’s Division I membership.

The extensive process included a self-study and a peer review over a three-year period.

"The certification committee, chaired by Richard Norman (vice president for finance and business services), examined our academic and financial integrity, governance, commitment to rules compliance and dedication to equity. Our certification is an affirmation of our integrity in and commitment to these key areas," said Brad Bates, Miami’s new director of intercollegiate athletics.

"The time and effort put into this review by our on-campus committee was exceptional. I want to thank all of them for the hundreds of hours of volunteer time in completing this project. I especially want to recognize Steve Snyder (interim director of intercollegiate athletics), whose experience at Miami was extraordinarily important, and all of the administrators, coaches and athletes for being open and honest in reviewing the department," Bates added.

There are 318 active Division I institutions. NCAA bylaws require that members complete a self-study at least once every 10 years and have it verified and evaluated through an external peer review.
