President of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)

Verne O. Sedlacek

“The Collegiate Model for the 21st Century”


Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Ives Concert Hall, White Hall, Midtown campus
181 White Street, Danbury, Connecticut

Free and open to the public


At a time of big ideas and defining moments for the Association, every division is facing important decisions about its future. Various groups hold different opinions and go about their business in different ways, but in the end are grounded in the same values. Dr. Emmert will address those core values of the Association and the Division III philosophy that both emphasize student-athlete success and well-being.

Mark A. Emmert became the fifth president of the NCAA in 2010.  Prior to his current position, he was president at the University of Washington, his alma mater, taking office in 2004.  Before returning to his alma mater, he was chancellor at Louisiana State University and was chief operating and academic officer at the University of Connecticut from 1995-1999. 

Dr. Emmert is a member of the Higher Education Working Group on Global Issues as part of the Council on Foreign Relations and is the former chair of the Executive Group of the Worldwide Universities Network.  He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Washington and has both a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in public administration from Syracuse University.
