Knight Commission meets – Responsibility given to college presidents

The Knight Commission, formed in 1990 to address the problems of college athletics, will meet this fall after a four-year hiatus to evaluate the effects of its earlier recommendations, the Associated Press reported August 16.

In 1996, the National Collegiate Athletic Association largely adopted the suggestions of the commission, which made college presidents responsible for three aspects of their athletic programs: athletic integrity, financial integrity and independent certification.

The commission, named for the James L. Knight Foundation, is made up of university presidents, the president of the NCAA, corporate sponsors and other officials.
