Student-Athlete Development Overview

Jump to Section Links

Student-Athlete Support Services is dedicated to the personal and professional growth of our student-athletes through the Student-Athlete Development program. It enhances the student-athlete experience in the areas of Community Services and Outreach and Career Development.  Each area is detailed in nature to meet the individual needs of each student-athlete. Additionally, Student-Athlete Development is charged with the coordination and execution of the Spartan Academic Excellence Gala each year.

Community Service and Outreach 

The Community Outreach program, Putting Athletes and Community Together (PACT), allows student-athletes to gain valuable experience, learn new skills and develop a sense of involvement that will stay with them throughout their life.

Career Development

The career development program is based on a three-part process that consists of career exploration, career development and career placement.

Academic Excellence Gala

This semi-formal event honors the accomplishments and successes of our student-athletes in the classroom and in the community. During the event, awards presented will honor student-athletes with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or above, the top male and female graduating seniors, two outstanding freshmen/sophomores, the men’s and women’s teams with the highest GPA, outstanding community service and leadership, and multicultural leadership.
