KANSAS CITY, Mo. – When it comes to advancing character-driven intercollegiate athletics, NAIA members are making the grade, according to results of the 2010-11 NAIA Champions of Character Scorecard released today by the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

No doubt this is a point of differentiation in college athletics and making a huge impact on our 60,000 student-athletes.” read full story
