SFU moves closer to full-member status in NCAA

July 16, 2012

The National Collegiate Athletic Association membership committee has conditionally approved Simon Fraser University as its first non-US member. The final step in the process comes August 1, when there will be a final vote by the executive council to decide if SFU will become a full member, effective September 1. "SFU’s ability to participate in the NCAA as a full member provides numerous opportunities to the university, not only in avenues it gives athletes to compete, but it will also build the profile of SFU throughout North America," says SFU president Andrew Petter.
