Pamela A. Eibeck, president of University of the Pacific, has been appointed to serve on the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Committee on Academics.
The new committee is chaired by Roderick McDavis, president of Ohio University, and comprises academic and athletics leaders from 18 other institutions of higher education, including Georgetown, Northwestern and Texas A&M.
“I am pleased to have the opportunity to serve the NCAA and the student-athletes it represents,” Eibeck said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues on the committee to advance the NCAA mission of supporting student-athlete success in the classroom and on the playing field.”
The new committee replaces two previous NCAA bodies: the Committee on Academic Performance and the Academic Cabinet.
