Our Priorities


Providing opportunities to earn a college degree is at the heart of our mission. Student-athlete graduation rates are the highest ever, with 80 percent earning their degrees.


We were founded to keep college sports safe. Today, we work hard to promote safety, excellence, and physical and mental well-being for student-athletes.


All college athletes deserve a fair shot. We focus on respect, integrity and responsibility, both on and off the field, so that college sports prepare student-athletes for life.


Our Work

Only a fraction of the nearly 8 million current high school athletes in the United States will go pro.

The NCAA’s Sport Science Institute promotes health and safety through research and training.

Where does the money go? NCAA schools distribute more than $3.5 billion in athletics scholarships each year.

Only teams that make the grade can participate in championships, and Division I schools' share of revenue will be tied to academics.
