Reasons for McKendree to join the
NCAA Division II
 Our university continues to grow in every way. It is time to
take the next growth step with our athletics program.
 The NCAA is a very recognizable and will help us in our
recruiting efforts for both students and student-athletes.
 Based on this recognizability, NCAA membership will
enhance the credibility and also the quality across the board
of McKendree’s athletic programs as well as sport-related
majors: Physical Education, Athletic Training, and Sport
Management (under development).
 NCAA membership will further promote the identity of
McKendree University in Southern Illinois.

Reasons for McKendree to join the
NCAA Division II continued
 Membership in the NCAA will open up opportunities
for potential sponsors and advertisers.
 We feel confident that membership in the NCAA will
help grow our university endowment fund and further
encourage alumni and others to participate in our
annual and capital fund-raising campaigns.
 On the athletic field of competition, NCAA
membership will pit McKendree against high quality,
regional and more universally recognized institutions.

NCAA Compliance
A key difference of the NCAA from the NAIA is the compliance
required by the NCAA for their rules and regulations. For
example, the following are carefully controlled:
 Practice times,
 Squad size,
 Number of Scholarships,
 Number and gender of sports,
 Use of banned drugs and stimulants,
 Grades and eligibility, and
 Recruiting practices.
NCAA has procedures in place to ensure compliance using selfreporting and onsite testing and inspections.
