Mission of the IAB
The Intercollegiate Athletics Board (IAB) acts in an advisory capacity to the Director of Athletics (AD) and the President of the University. The IAB is charged by the President to report back, on an annual basis, on the functioning of the intercollegiate athletics program with respect to those activities defined in its Bylaws.
The IAB has regular communications with the Faculty Senate, the Student Athlete Advisory Council and other key stakeholders for provision of information to, and solicitation of input from, the university community. The IAB and its subcommittees provides feedback and advice to the Athletic Department on matters concerning compliance functions, academic issues, gender equity, and budget development.
The IAB is a SUNY-mandated committee. Operational guidelines for the IAB from SUNY are available at http://www.suny.edu/sunypp/documents.cfm?doc_id=50.
