NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs

The NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs program offers programming to cultivate student-athletes’ lives in five main areas: academic excellence, athletic excellence, personal development, career development and commitment to service. Created in 1991, the NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs program at NCAA member institutions are supported nationally through the promotional and financial efforts of the NCAA Foundation, the NCAA and the Division I-A Athletic Directors’ Association. 

The NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs program coordinates events in the areas of community outreach through the “Rockets ‘Round Town” program.  While continuing to utilize campus services for job search and career planning, the department has enhanced its career development programming through its partnership with AfterSport, a student-athlete career planning organization that was founded and is run entirely by two former collegiate and professional athletes who have also been successful in corporate America.
