Message from NEPSAC - July 2020

As a core value, NEPSAC believes in and is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion among its member schools, student-athletes, coaches, and administrators. The deaths of Black Americans and countless others who have been targeted because of their race are reprehensible and unequivocally wrong. These tragedies, and systemic racism, go against everything NEPSAC and our member schools stand for. NEPSAC will not tolerate racism in any form and remains dedicated to working with member schools to ensure a safe, healthy, fair, anti-racist, and rewarding athletic experience for all.

The Board feels it is important that NEPSAC not remain silent at this important time.  It also the Board’s hope that once the Coordinator of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is approved, and a person is appointed to the position, that he or she would begin work on a similar statement to be added to the NEPSAC Bylaws.
