» NCAA Certification Self-Study Report

In June 2008, California State University, Bakersfield President Horace Mitchell announced that CSUB would begin a yearlong, campus-wide effort to study the athletics program as a part of the National Collegiate Athletics Association Division I certification program. The certification program's purpose is to help ensure integrity in the university's athletics operations. The study examined three specific operating principles, as defined by the NCAA: 1. Governance and Commitment to Rules Compliance; 2. Academic Integrity; and 3. Gender Issues, Diversity Issues and Student- Athlete Well-Being.

Below are links to an executive summary of the self-study process and findings, as well as a link to a draft of the full self-study report. Your feedback on the draft report is encouraged. Questions and input may be directed to Evelyn Coyle at (661) 654-2241 or NCAAFeedback@csub.edu.

The Athletics Certification Committee submitted an analysis report that asked for clarification to some responses that had been submitted. CSUB's responses to the report as well as the updated improvement plans were submitted on 09/21/09.
