Loyola Athletics Recertified By NCAA


March 1, 2012

INDIANAPOLIS - The NCAA announced today that Loyola University Maryland successfully completed the athletics recertification process, concluding that Loyola operates its athletics program in compliance with all principles adopted by the Division I membership.

All NCAA Division I member institutions must be recertified every 10 years. The process includes a self-study and a review of academic integrity, gender/diversity issues, student-athlete well being, and governance and rules compliance.

"This recognition from the NCAA reflects the commitment to excellence made by Loyola's outstanding student-athletes and athletics staff," said Jim Paquette, assistant vice president and director of athletics at Loyola. "With the help of the campus community, this extensive review reaffirmed our many strengths and identified valuable opportunities for growth that we can pursue as we continue to challenge ourselves to improve."

Loyola is among 12 colleges and universities that were fully recertified in this cycle, including fellow Jesuit institution Santa Clara University. Certification, which is separate from the NCAA's enforcement program, has been mandated since 1993 to ensure the integrity of athletics programs and assist institutions with improvements when necessary. The Division I Committee on Athletics Certification reviews each institution's certification materials and provides a list of issues to be addressed. Peer reviewers then visit each school to determine if the school has resolved issues that were identified.
