Charter for Mizzou Intercollegiate Athletics Special Committee

The University of Missouri Board of Curators has created a Mizzou Intercollegiate Athletics Special Committee.  

Through our Huron engagement, personal experiences, observation, and feedback, we are aware that the fundamental aspects of Collegiate Athletics are undergoing significant and ongoing changes. These include, but are not limited to, shifts in athlete acquisition and retention methods and costs, the changing landscape of coach salaries and mobility, as well as the rising expenses associated with maintaining, upgrading, and constructing facilities. These changes bring about various challenges with broader implications.

Professional studies suggest, and other universities have mandated, that effective leadership and active involvement of governing boards in decisions related to collegiate athletics are considered best practices. Particularly at this critical moment in the evolution of key programs and with major planned investments in MU Athletics imminent, accountability to the Board and the State through this new committee is more important than ever.

The University of Missouri – Columbia Athletic Director or some other person(s) designated by the President of the University, with the concurrence of the Board Chair and the Committee Chair, shall be the executive liaison to the committee and may be responsible for transmitting committee recommendations.

This special committee will be charged, but not limited to, the following:

A. To obtain, monitor, and gather all information the committee deems necessary to assess progress of athletic funding, efforts and results of funding.

B. To obtain, monitor and gather all information regarding the progress of the Memorial Stadium Project, any other athletic facilities or plans and the progress of the Huron Roadmap.

C. To be advised of regularly or upon request of the committee on matters concerning NCAA, SEC or any legal matters pending or on the horizon regarding the foregoing and NIL, Title IX, taxable status of contributions or other matters that may affect Athletics at MU.

D. To do whatever is necessary to aid the committee in measuring, understanding and keeping current on any matters related to MU athletic activities that exist or what is foreseeable when it becomes foreseeable.

The Board of Curators directs the following actions by the University of Missouri administration: recognize and execute all things necessary to cooperate and adhere to the requests and directives of this special committee in a timely manner so the committee can accomplish its activities.

Approved by the Board of Curators: 2/8/2024
