Letter to the Editor: University hires athletic consultants

Brett Simpson

The University has hired InterCollegiate Athletic Consulting to do to a review of our Athletics and Wellness Department. This includes intercollegiate athletics, wellness, intramurals, clubs sports and facilities (essentially all the programs offered within our department). They are also studying our positioning with respect to intercollegiate athletics.

To date they have visited with over 200 members of the Loyola community including faculty, staff, students, alumni and trustees. ICAC will study all aspects of our athletics program including financial resources, facilities, level of competitiveness, and how we compare to our athletic and academic peers. Any speculation on a change in conference or national affiliation is extremely premature as we expect to receive their final report the spring semester.
