|Vision, Mission, and Goals
The mission of the Drake Group is to defend academic integrity in higher education from the corrosive aspects of commercialized college sports.
The Drake Group was founded in 1999 when Jon Ericson, a former professor and provost at Drake University, invited a distinguished group of college faculty, authors, and activists to a twenty-four-hour think tank on how to end academic corruption in college sport.
|Board of Directors
The current TDG Board of Directors. All officers and directors are elected by a majority vote of all Drake Group Members.
The TDG Advisory Council consists of prominent experts in various disciplines related to the effect of commercialization and other factors on the academic integrity of intercollegiate athletics.
The Drake Group annually awards the Robert Maynard Hutchins Award to faculty or staff members who take a courageous stand to defend academic integrity at their institutions, often risking job security in doing so.
