UNCW student athletes informed of pending decision

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - UNCW student athletes have been notified via email (see below) that the results of the Intercollegiate Athletics Review Committee (IARC) will be made public Wednesday afternoon.

The email comes roughly three months after the committee was formed at the request of Chancellor Gary Miller who asked that it "examine the sustainability and vitality of each of our 19 sports programs in comparison with strategic initiatives, fiscal capability, community support and national competitiveness."

UNCW has the lowest overall athletic department budget ($11.5 million) in the nine-team Colonial Athletic Association.

 

To UNCW Student-Athletes:

Later today, UNCW's Intercollegiate Athletics Review Committee (IARC) will publicly release its findings following three months of collecting and analyzing data while interviewing various constituents of the UNCW community. The report can be found on UNCW's website at www.uncw.edu/iarc<http://www.uncw.edu/iarc> and a link will also be placed on the athletics web presence at http://www.uncwsports.com.

This committee faced an extremely important and difficult task. This is a challenging time for UNCW Athletics and the IARC was formed to help steer a path forward that would create greater opportunities for success across our sports programs.

Please keep in mind that the report is strictly a recommendation to Chancellor Gary Miller at this time. I will sit down with Chancellor Miller in the coming weeks to analyze the report and chart a course of action for the future of UNCW Athletics. You will be notified immediately when those final decisions are made.

If you have any questions about the report's recommendations, please do not hesitate to reach out to your head coach or to my office.
