LaVoi elected to NCAA Board focused on scholarly activity in college athletics

LaVoiN-2010.jpg Nicole M. LaVoi, Ph.D., lecturer and associate director of the Tucker Center, was recently elected to serve a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Forum for the Scholarly Study of Intercollegiate Athletics in Higher Education.

Started under the sponsorship of the NCAA but editorially and philosophically independent, the purpose of the Forum is to stimulate, encourage and promote study, research and writing related to intercollegiate athletics; to demonstrate the relevance of research for reform efforts in intercollegiate athletics; to support core values of higher education in relationship to intercollegiate sport and to organize and conduct an annual scholarly colloquium, that is held just prior to the annual NCAA Convention. The Board also edits a journal, The Journal of Intercollegiate Sport, published by Human Kinetics.
