NCAA Committee Plans
A National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) committee yesterday formally unveiled a plan to increase the involvement of university presidents in college athletics while heading off what some see as an attempted power grab by a group of university presidents affiliated with the American Council on Education (ACE).
The group of university presidents has proposed a plan that would give a small group of college presidents unprecedented power over college athletics.
Like the ACE plan, the NCAA's counter proposal, which was formulated by a group of college presidents and administrators, would set up a presidential commission. However, the commission envisioned by the NCAA would not have the far-reaching powers of the ACE commission.
Both proposals will be presented at the NCAA convention in January and will require for approval a two-thirds majority vote by the almost 900 NCAA member schools.
Supporters of each proposal are expected to mount massive lobbying campaigns nationwide among college president.
