Official Policy Positions
Position papers represent TDG’s official stance on an issue in intercollegiate athletics. Position statements are created on an ‘as needed’ basis usually in reaction to multiple media or public requests, in response to recurring events, and/or as part of proactive education and media campaigns focused on needed intercollegiate athletics governance association reforms.
The Drake Group collects articles consistent with the TDG’s mission that address the major issues facing intercollegiate athletics. This library is a COLLECTION BY TOPIC of all Drake Group content so that readers can search by topic rather than purpose.
Editorials and Opinions
Members of The Drake Group and its Advisory Council are frequently called upon to produce editorials, blogs, or opinion pieces. If such writings are consistent with official TDG policy positions and deemed to contribute important information to the understanding of an intercollegiate athletics issue, they are selected to be displayed on the Drake website. The authors of such publications are responsible for the content of these articles.
Media or press releases are often issued in response to breaking news and represent the expression of TDG’s official stance on an important event. Releases usually include quotes from TDG officers and other expert opinions and often include links to Official Drake Group position statements. Note that press releases announcing the release of policy position papers or recipients of Drake Group awards are not included in this section.
