Head Men’s Basketball Coach Tod Kowalczyk has been selected to participate in an Academic Integrity Summit being held by the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Academic Integrity Unit Wednesday, June 21, in Indianapolis.
The goal of the summit will be to develop best practices for member schools concerning how to detect and prevent academic misconduct in online courses. The best practices document that is created would include an educational component and a tool kit to assist in detection of potential NCAA violations involving academic integrity.Rather than creating burdens or new rules for member schools, the resources would be designed to satisfy an appetite on campus for practical guidance on this challenging issue. At this time, the sports of football and basketball will be the focus of this effort; however, the list of sports covered could expand.
“I am extremely privileged and honored to be a part of the first Academic Integrity Summit held by the NCAA,” Kowalczyk said. “There will be many different ideas talked about during this meeting, and I look forward to providing feedback to help intercollegiate athletics.”
Kowalczyk will be joined at the summit by representatives from the Collegiate Commissioners Association Compliance Administrators, National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics, National Association for Athletics Compliance, Women’s Basketball Coaches Association, National Association of Basketball Coaches and American Football Coaches Association.
