Coming Together (Diversity Headline)
UW Athletic Department
The Division of Intercollegiate Athletics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison dedicates itself to the mission of providing athletic opportunities to a wide range of students and an environment in which all student-athletes can achieve their academic and competitive goals. The Division strives to provide equitable opportunities for all student-athletes and staff, regardless of gender or ethnic backgrounds. To honor its academic mission and that of the university, the Division supports the educational aspirations, academic progress and general welfare of the student-athlete. In competition, the Division fosters principles of sportsmanship, respect, fair play and athletic excellence. In all of its activities, the Division insists on integrity, ethical conduct and accountability.
In 2007, Lessons Learned started as a way to enhance coaches' knowledge on various topics related to the coaching profession. Once per month coaches and athletic department staff are invited to listen to a presentation on various topics and engage in dialogue with questions, comments, and concerns. Topics covered vary but include diversity recruitment and retention.
