1.  DIII Strategic Plan

Each year, the Division III Strategic Planning and Finance Committee updates and approves the division’s strategic plan and budget. This year, the committee updated the strategic plan to better reflect the division’s support of the student-athlete experience.

The strategic plan begins with the Division III philosophy statement to establish the framework from which the division’s programs, resource allocations and regulatory decisions are made. It summarizes the division’s strategic priorities by outlining what must be accomplished in the current year of the budget triennium for the division to be successful.

The plan also highlights all the programs and services offered for the division. The plan includes feedback provided through the membership survey conducted in February.

The strategic plan is a living document that the committee updates and forwards to the Management and President Councils for approval before the start of each new budget cycle.

Chi Alpha Sigma is the first, and only, national scholar-athlete society to honor those four-year collegiate student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition.

Founded in 1996 and with over 300 active chapters nationwide, Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes undergraduate college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average. One institutional chapter membership will induct all eligible student-athletes each year and the student-athletes are recognized for life and never asked to pay any fees themselves.

To start a chapter on your campus today, contact Kellen Wells-Mangold, Executive Director, at kellen@ncahs.org or visit chialphasigma.org for more information.
