UT President Sharon L. Gaber will be helping with the NCAA’s strategic plan.

The NCAA Board of Governors named Gaber to a 10-member working group that will put together a long-range plan that solidifies the direction and priorities of the association.


Since 2017, Gaber has represented the Mid-American Conference on the NCAA Division I President Forum.

“I am excited to work with my colleagues on the NCAA’s strategic plan,” Gaber said. “College sports play a vital role in higher education. We will be working on a blueprint to enhance collegiate athletics on college campuses across the country.”

With the help of a consulting firm, the group will gather feedback from presidents, commissioners, athletics directors, student-athletes, coaches, faculty athletics representatives, senior woman administrators, athletics health-care administrators and others. These insights will be collected through interviews, focus groups and surveys this fall.

After the collection of feedback, the working group will begin drafting the plan.

The NCAA Board of Governors is targeting summer 2019 for the final strategic plan.
