We would like to change the name of this course from Sport
Governance to Governance and NCAA Compliance. The course covers all of the
major sport governing bodies, but focuses a more extensive amount of time on
NCAA compliance. We want the title to better represent the course content.
Students will learn the structure and function of the various
sport organizations. There will be significant focus on the National
Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) which is the biggest governing body in
collegiate athletics. This course challenges students to integrate management
theory with governance and policy development practices. Case studies are
incorporated so that students are able to utilize the concepts taught in the course.
