NCAA - NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The Association's purpose, as declared in the Division III membership manual, is to initiate, stimulate and improve intercollegiate athletics programs for the student-athletes and to promote and develop educational leadership, physical fitness, athletics excellence and athletics participation as a recreational pursuit.
The competitive athletics programs of member institutions are designed to be a vital part of the educational system. A basic purpose of this association is to maintain intercollegiate athletics as an integral part of the educational program and the athlete as an integral part of the student body and, by so doing, retain a clear line of demarcation between intercollegiate athletics and professional sports.
