This is Hofstra University


ntering its 75th year, Hofstra University provides a dynamic college experience tailored for engaged and ambitious individuals. Students find their edge at Hofstra, through small classes, a faculty whose primary concern is teaching, cutting edge technology, extensive library resources, internships, and special educational programs that appeal to their interests and abilities. The Hofstra community is driven, dynamic and energetic, helping students find and focus their strengths to prepare them for a successful future. In its relatively short history, Hofstra has established itself as a world-class institution of higher education and cultural enterprise. Each academic year, the Hofstra campus and the programs offered grow and change to meet the demands of our students and our community. Hofstra opened in 1935 as a commuter school with all classes and offices housed in one building. Since those early days, Hofstra has evolved into an international institution with a student body hailing from 47 states and territories, and 67 countries around the world. The beautiful campus is an accredited arboretum with 115 buildings on 240 acres. There are approximately 4,200 students living on campus, and Hofstra offers them and all students an extensive array of academic and social activities. Additionally, Hofstra’s close proximity to Manhattan means that students have easy access to the wondrous cultural, social and career offerings of the city. What has remained consistent throughout the years, however, is the sense of community on campus, the eagerness of our students to learn and the commitment of the Hofstra faculty and administration to provide a challenging education that encourages


the pursuit of lifelong learning. The Colleges and Schools of the University are: Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Frank G. Zarb School of Business, New College for Interdisciplinary Studies, School of Communication, School of Education, Health and Human Services, School of Law, School for University Studies, Honors College, Hofstra University Continuing Education and Hofstra University School of Medicine in partnership with the North Shore-LIJ Health System. Bachelor’s degrees are offered in about 140 areas of study. Graduate degrees are offered, including Ph.D., Ed.D., Psy.D., Au.D., and J.D. degrees, advanced certificates and professional diplomas, in more approximately 150 programs of study. Hofstra joined with North Shore-LIJ Health System in announcing plans to establish a medical school on the University campus in October 2007. The new school, which will enroll its first students in 2011, will be the first allopathic (MD) medical school in Nassau County and the first in New York State since 1963. In October 2008 the eyes of the world were on Hofstra as the University hosted the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain. The October 15 debate, moderated by Bob Schieffer, was a transformational moment for the University, highlighting the achievements of our students and faculty and their engagement in the political process. Leading up to the debate, students and the entire community were engaged by the year-long Educate ’08 program, almost 150 lectures, conferences, and events focused on the issues, history and politics of the presidency. Hofstra has followed the Educate ’08 program with Define ’09, a year-long series of programs designed to examine the new presidential administration, its policies and initiatives, the challenges we currently face and ways of addressing our country’s most pressing issues. 2008 also saw Hofstra award its first Guru Nanak Interfaith Prize to His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. The new international award, which recognizes efforts at interfaith dialogue, received 75 nominations for individuals and organizations from around the world. Hofstra’s School of Communication is one of the largest, most advanced non-commercial television facilities in the East.

2010 Outlook


ofstra women’s soccer coach Simon Riddiough is known as one of the best defensive players in the history of the school’s men’s soccer program. His expertise has carried over into his coaching, as he has always had the Pride among the top defensive teams in the CAA, and often among the top defensive teams in the country. This year’s team may feel a little different to Riddiough, as the Pride returns its top seven forwards and midfielders from last year and will likely have one of the most explosive offensive teams in school history. However, the team has some holes to fill defensively after the graduation of three starters. If the defense can gel and overcome its relative youth, the Pride could certainly find itself in the hunt for a CAA title and an NCAA Tournament berth. Hofstra will be tested by its early schedule, as it will face three teams that were ranked for much of last season on the road, beginning with its opener at Boston College. The Pride will also have a challenging twogame road trip to Indiana and Purdue, and face a few difficult local rivals in Princeton, Columbia, Fordham and Rhode Island. Here is a position-by-position look at the Hofstra Women’s Soccer team, heading into the 2010 season:

Forward Hofstra returns all three of its starting forwards from last year, which could give the Pride its most explosive offense in recent memory. Senior Salma Tarik moved to the center forward role last year and responded with a spectacular season, tallying 10 goals and four assists. Tarik showed the ability to finish in the box, as well as take multiple players on with the ball at her feet, and was named a first-team All-CAA and first-team allregion selection.

Salma Tarik

The Pride traditionally likes to use a forward rotation to keep fresh legs on the field, which will open up minutes for other players as well. Grace Hawkins, a senior transfer from Villanova who had 11 goals in three seasons with the Wildcats will add to the Pride’s depth of talent at forward. Sophomore Erin Breen played in five games last year and could see some time as a target forward, while freshman Michelle Ryan of Florida will also look to earn playing time up front in her rookie season.


Flanking Tarik are senior Kayla Pifer is Kayla Pifer back on the left, and junior Laura Greene on the right. Both players have exceptional speed and the ability to turn the corner and serve dangerous crosses. Greene really emerged during her sophomore season as an outstanding complementary threat, leading the Pride with eight assists and scoring one of her three goals in the CAA Tournament against UNC Wilmington. Pifer has had numerous big plays in her career, including a goal against No. 25 Indiana last season, and a key assist in an NCAA Tournament win over Ohio State as a freshman. The Pride traditionally likes to use a forward rotation to keep fresh legs on the


field, which will open up minutes for other players as well. Grace Hawkins, a senior transfer from Villanova who had 11 goals in three seasons with the Wildcats will add to the Pride’s depth of talent at forward. Sophomore Erin Breen played in five games last year and could see some time as a target forward, while redshirt freshman Krysti Rodriguez hopes to return full strength from an injuryshortened 2009 season. Freshman Michelle Ryan of Florida will also look to earn playing time up front in her rookie year.

Much like the forward spot, Hofstra has everyone back in its midfield this season, including its top reserve. Senior Tiffany Yovino, and juniors Courtney Breen and Brittany Butts will be in their third year starting together and should provide Hofstra with exceptional cohesiveness and chemistry in the center of the field. Sophomore Danielle Murino played extensively off the bench last year to give the Pride a solid four-player rotation for the three spots. Yovino has been a standout from the moment she arrived as a freshman in

Hofstra 2010 Women’s Soccer

Brittany Butts

2007 and helped the Pride to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. She is a three-time AllCAA and three-time all-region selection and has the versatility to play either an offensive or defensive role in the midfield. She also has had a flair for the dramatic in her career, including a tying (Richmond) and winning (Delaware) goal in the final two minutes of regulation last year.

last year and played with exceptional poise for a freshman in 2009. She is a sure tackler who is tough and reads the game well. Senior Dana Bergstrom moved from forward to left back a year ago and played every minute of every game, providing the Pride with a dangerous weapon up the left flank with her booming left foot. Bergstrom is also frequently used on set pieces due to her powerful shot and accurate corner kicks.

Tiffany Yovino

Breen also stepped in and started right away as a freshman, and has taken on a defensive role to allow Yovino to push forward more often. Breen has also been an All-CAA and all-region selection in both of her first two seasons and is Hofstra’s strongest player in the air, making her a dangerous weapon on set pieces.

Laura Greene Sophomore Brooke Bendernagel started three games last year at center back while Caldwell was playing for the Ireland national team and also had a strong spring season, showing the potential to be a full-time starter this year. Redshirt freshman Brittany Farriella sat out last season and could

Butts has proven to be a perfect complement to Yovino and Breen, as she does a lot of the hard work in the midfield to allow the other two to push forward and go to goal. Butts could potentially provide some scoring punch herself, but with all the offensive weapons that the Pride has up top and a young team in the back, she may play conservatively this fall. Murino proved to be a strong addition to the Pride last year, scoring a pair of goals and adding an assist off the bench. As the year went on, she played with more and more confidence and would take defenders on off the dribble. She is a versatile player who could also see substantial playing time at forward or outside back this season. Hofstra also hopes to have some depth in the midfield to utilize as well. Redshirt sophomore Nicki Choffel missed last season with a knee injury after seeing some playing time off the bench as a freshman, but is expected to return at full strength. Incoming freshman Tara Kerns has the potential to be an immediate contributor in her rookie season. Amber Stobbs, a speedy player who was also a scholastic sprinter in England, could fill in at midfield, or potentially move up to forward, if needed.

Defense Hofstra has plenty of depth and talent up front, but has some question marks to fill defensively, as it will have two new starters on the back four and a new starting goalie. Seniors Diane Caldwell and Jess Crankshaw started for four years for the Pride before graduating last year, while Krysten Farriella graduated after starting two years at goalkeeper. The Pride does have two key members of its back four returning. Sophomore center back Amy Turner was a CAA All-Rookie selection

Dana Bergstrom

also play on the central defensive unit, while British freshman Ruby Staplehurst is expected to challenge for playing time with her on the back four or at forward. The Pride also has the option of moving one of its midfielders to the defensive unit this season.

Goalie Returning sophomore Kylie Shuster was lost for the season with a knee injury suffered in the spring, which opens the door for one of two new players to start this year (or potentially split time). Senior Krista Thorn, who played goalkeeper for one year at Iona in 2007 before transferring to Hofstra to join the softball team, will also break out the goalie gloves once again this season for the Pride. British freshman Emily Morphitis has gained a lot of experience playing for the England junior national teams (U15, U17, U19) and with the Chelsea reserves, which Hofstra’s coaching staff hopes will give her a steady influence in net that belies her freshman status.

Hofstra University Director of Athletics


ack Hayes is in his seventh year as director of athletics at Hofstra University in 2010-11. Hayes was appointed by Hofstra President Stuart Rabinowitz as the University’s director of athletics on October 4, 2004. Hayes came to Hofstra after serving as an associate director of athletics at the University of Connecticut for three years.   Hayes, the eighth director of athletics at Hofstra, leads a department that includes 17 Division I teams, 90 coaches and administrative staff members and 350 student-athletes. Hayes’ proven expertise in enhancing academic and athletic success of student-athletes, strategic planning, fund-raising, marketing, university relations, facility enhancement, budgetary management, and NCAA compliance complements Hofstra University’s athletic department in its quest to further enhance its athletic program, and assist Hofstra’s student-athletes both on and off the field. The Hofstra Athletic program has flourished under Hayes’ leadership, winning 19 CAA Championships and making 28 postseason appearances since the 2004-05 academic year. In 2009-10 four Pride teams qualified for postseason play, while in 2008-09 the Pride wrestling team won the CAA Championship for an eighth consecutive year and the men’s lacrosse program advanced to the NCAA Tournament as an at-large selection. In addition, Hofstra hosted the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals in 2009, which saw nearly 12,000 people fill James M. Shuart Stadium for the event.

JACK HAYES Director of Athletics

Hayes has placed a significant emphasis on fund-raising during his tenure. Pride Club membership reached all-time highs, both in terms of the number of contributors and funds raised as the organization topped the $1 million mark for the third consecutive year in 2009-10. Resources generated through fund-raising efforts have been used to enhance programs and facilities available to student-athletes. Recent initiatives include the construction of baseball’s Quinn Family Grandstand and an academic center on the second floor of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. Other recent renovations include locker rooms, the wrestling room, athletic training rooms in Margiotta Hall and the Physical Fitness Center, the basketball media room in the Mack Sports Complex, a press box at the Hofstra Soccer Stadium, the replacement of the turf at James M. Shuart Stadium and the construction of the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium. In 2006 Hayes reintroduced the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame after more than a 50-year absence, inducting four classes since that time. He also led an effort to retire the uniform numbers of prominent Hofstra student-athletes with 20 jersey retirement ceremonies held during the 2008-09 academic year. Active on a national level, Hayes served on the NCAA Division I Lacrosse Committee from September 2006 to September 2008.

Hofstra Heritage

HOFSTRA SYMBOLS AND HERITAGE The Symbols of Hofstra University The Shield Logo

The Pride

In 2005 Hofstra introduced a new logo as part of a University-wide re-imaging. Both the University’s logo as well as the Pride logo were designed by advertising agency Powell New York, a full-service branding and marketing agency, noted as one of the ten firms to watch in 2005 in Advertising Age. The new University logo features an “H” within a shield design. Hofstra University has always been known for both a tradition of academic excellence and a willingness to evolve to meet the needs of students and the greater society. This shield represents the University’s commitment to our heritage and a tradition of academic excellence, while the dynamic representation of the H within the shield embodies the evolutionary, changing nature of the University. Hofstra University has both honored its traditions and heritage while embracing changing disciplines, using new technology and remaining relevant to scholarly pursuits and the demands of industry.

The Seal

The Hofstra seal was designed from the royal Dutch emblem by art instructor Constant Van de Wall. The seal is modeled on the coat of arms of the House of Orange-Nassau. The round seal includes the coat of arms, flanked by lions on either side. A lion also stands in the center of the coat of arms, holding a sword in its right claw and a bundle of seven arrows, which represent the seven provinces of Holland, in its left. The seal also carries the motto of the House of Orange-Nassau in Old French: “Je maintiendray” (I stand steadfast). In 1988 one of the two lions on the seal was officially replaced with a lioness. The Hofstra seal is still in use today, though not as a logo. The seal will be affixed to formal documents, and used for official purposes such as commencement, convocations, and official University functions.


Hofstra’s athletic teams are officially known as the Pride, providing our teams with a strong, consistent image that resonates with the Hofstra community. The new Hofstra Athletics logo consists of a graphic mark of a male and female lion in powerful, synchronized motion with the word mark of the Hofstra Pride or the specific sports team. This logo will be the only one used by Hofstra Athletics. The Hofstra Pride refers to a pack of lions, male and female, which work together towards a common goal and symbolize determination and strength. The Pride conveys both the teamwork and togetherness that is a trait of lions living in prides, who have a close bond and work together for the good of the entire group. The teamwork evident in prides is a trait of Hofstra’s student-athletes, who support each other in furtherance of a common goal, while working tirelessly to represent their teams and, in turn, the University. Lions also possess speed, tenacity, and agility, and are relentless in their pursuit of a goal, which are traits our student-athletes demonstrate both on and off the field. The first consistent use of the word “Pride” relating to athletics was in 1989 when the University’s athletic booster club was founded and called itself The Pride Club, which at the time simply referred to the pride that alumni and fans had for our teams. The Pride identity has progressed over the past decade in a more specific fashion than just the expression of a feeling. After one lion on the Hofstra seal was changed into a lioness to symbolize gender equity, the University mascots – Kate and Willie Pride, a lioness and lion – were introduced.

Hofstra’s Dutch Heritage


ies to Dutch heritage and the Netherlands began with William S. Hofstra, after whom the school is named and on whose property the University was started. William Hofstra died in 1932 and when his wife, Kate, died 16 months later, her will provided that their house, 15-acre estate, and bulk of her inheritance were to be used for a “public, charitable, benevolent, or scientific purpose” as a memorial to her husband. The idea for a college came from Truesdel Peck Calkins, former Hempstead superintendent of schools, who was then with New York University. He suggested that NYU might offer extension courses on the Hofstra property. Hofstra opened in September 1935, as a two-year extension branch of NYU; its official name was “Nassau College – Hofstra Memorial of New York University at Hempstead, Long Island.” When the doors opened, the sole building on campus was Hofstra’s mansion, which he had affectionately named the Netherlands after his homeland, and all classes were held there. The mansion, which houses administrative offices, is now the center of Hofstra’s 240-acre campus, and has been renamed Hofstra Hall.

Academic Support


ofstra University is committed to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence. The University views participation in intercollegiate athletics as benefiting the student-athlete in an educationally enhancing experience beyond any other opportunity available. Hofstra also realizes the time commitment made by student-athletes and has committed the facilities and resources to support all students.

Area three is academic monitoring. The advisor monitors the academic progress of student‑athletes to ensure compliance with Hofstra University, NCAA and conference regulations. The advisor’s regular communication with the faculty and coaches provide opportunities for early intervention should academic difficulties arise. Area four is study halls. The University Tutorial Program supports athletic study halls by providing tutors in various subjects as necessary. The academic advisors also assess the needs of individual student‑athletes to provide the most effective study environment. The assessment tool administered by the Center for University Advisement is also used to provide various enrichment seminars for the student‑athletes such as time management, writing skills, campus resources, and surviving the college transition.

The University Tutorial Program (UTP) provides free tutoring in every subject area to any Hofstra student. Students are able to obtain up to 1 1/2 hours of individual tutorial assistance per week for up to three courses. They are also able to utilize the various help labs on campus, which specialize in providing assistance in writing, business and QM, and biology and chemistry. In addition to this service, student-athletes are assigned an academic advisor, through the Center for University Advisement, who helps address the various needs of student‑athletes. The academic advisor emphasizes four areas in their efforts to ensure the academic success of Hofstra’s student-athletes. Area one is academic counseling. Services are provided in the areas of academic planning, career planning, personal counseling, and campus and community referrals. The advisor also meets with prospective student‑athletes, at the coach’s request, to share the many benefits of a Hofstra University education.

In 2010 a new Academic Center was opened on the second level of the James M. Shuart Stadium Building. The center houses the offices of the Student-Athlete Services staff, as well as a large computer lab with printer access for use by Hofstra student-athletes, a quiet study area with wireless internet access and two group study/tutor rooms with power point access and white boards.

Area two is academic advising. The academic advisor serves as the primary advisor for first-year and undecided student-athletes, and also assists upperclassmen who have declared a major.

Yorio is an internist with specialized training in sports medicine. He earned his undergraduate degree at Villanova University, and received his medical degree from the SUNY Health Science Center in Syracuse.

Hofstra Soccer Stadium/Facilities



he Hofstra Men’s and Women’s Soccer Teams play at the Hofstra University Soccer Stadium, located on the University’s north campus, adjacent to the Hofstra Physical Education Building. The Stadium, constructed in 2003 through a partnership with the New York Jets, features a 120-yard by 74-yard FieldTurf surface, stadium lighting, metal bleachers the length of the field, the Gorman Memorial Gateway and the Hofstra Soccer Walls of Honor. In 2009 a new press box was installed. In addition, signs commemorating Hofstra’s conference championships, NCAA Tournament appearances and retired jerseys are displayed on the west end of the stadium. Since its’ opening, the Pride is 43-11-6 at the Stadium. The FieldTurf system, which was installed by Landtek of Amityville, New York, replicates a natural grass surface, but offers the durability and cost benefits of synthetic fields. FieldTurf is a safe alternative, resulting in a documented reduction of sports injuries. The sand and rubber infill system is the biggest technical development that the sport surfacing industry has seen in the last 25 years. This patented technology sets FieldTurf apart from all other sports surfaces. In June 2001 the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the worldwide governing body for the sport of soccer, gave its official recommendation to the artificial grass FieldTurf installation at Boston University’s Nickerson Field for international competition and domestic league play. The historic ruling, the first and only certification of an artificial surface in the world at this time, means that venues with FieldTurf can be used for all preliminary competition matches for the FIFA World Cup and Olympic Football Tournaments as well as for professional league play. There have been more than 500 FieldTurf installations worldwide in recent years.

Musco is recognized as a world-class leader in sports lighting with lighting systems installed around the globe. A leader in developing sports-lighting technology – including solutions for permanent and temporary lighting, and sports facility management – Musco offers innovative systems, a comprehensive package of services, and decades of experience. Working with organizations such as Amateur Softball Association, Babe Ruth League, Disney, England and Wales Cricket Board, Little League Baseball®, Major League Baseball, NASCAR, and the NBA, Musco has played a key role in developing guidelines for safe, efficient sports facilities. Musco is a Major Partner with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA); provides the Official Sports-Lighting System for Little League Baseball and was selected to light Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex — a state-of-the-art 200-acre complex with facilities for more than 30 sports. The facility is outfitted with a seating system from the Southern Bleacher Company of Graham, Texas. Since 1946, Southern Bleacher has set the standard of excellence in the design and manufacturing of sports stadiums and entertainment venues. Southern Bleacher products grace professional baseball diamonds and soccer fields, college campuses, school districts, NASCAR tracks and rodeo arenas across the United States.

The facility is lit with a system from the Iowa-based Musco Lighting Company.

The Hofstra Soccer Stadium served as the home site of first round Men’s NCAA Tournament games in 2005 and 2006, as well as hosting numerous high school playoff contests. The stadium also served as the practice field for the Jets during their public preseason camp workouts until the team moved its headquarters from Hofstra in 2008.

THE GORMAN MEMORIAL GATEWAY The Gorman Memorial Gateway, named in honor of former Hofstra Soccer player Frank Gorman, who died tragically on January 5, 2003, was officially dedicated on Sunday, September 17, 2006. The Gorman Memorial Gateway project included a gated entrance to the Hofstra Soccer Stadium and ticket windows, as well as a Hofstra Men’s and Women’s Soccer Walls of Fame, the Sergio Villanueva Memorial

Garden and a picnic area behind the east side goal. Future plans include alumni bleachers behind the east goal. Donors to the Gorman Memorial Gateway Fund have their names inscribed on a plaque at the Gateway entrance to the Hofstra University Soccer Stadium.

The Colonial Athletic Association


oming off the celebration of its 25th Anniversary in 200910, the Colonial Athletic Association has built a reputation as one of the nation’s top collegiate conferences both athletically and academically. The CAA encompasses five of the nation’s nine largest metropolitan areas with a geographic footprint that stretches from Boston to Atlanta. The conference has produced 16 national team champions in five different sports, 33 individual national champions, 12 national players of the year, 12 national coaches of the year and 12 Honda Award winners. Just as impressive, however, are the honors accumulated away from competition, which include five Rhodes Scholars and 20 NCAA post-graduate scholars. In 2009-10 the CAA had more than 1,700 of the league’s 4,000 student-athletes receive the Commissioner’s Academic Award after posting at least a 3.2 grade point average while lettering in a varsity sport. The conference had 28 teams in 15 different sports receive NCAA Public Recognition Awards based on the latest Academic Progress Report released in 2010. The landscape of the conference stretches along the majority of the East Coast, and includes six of the nation’s top 25 media markets – New York (1), Philadelphia (4), Boston (7), Atlanta (8), Washington, D.C. (9) and Baltimore (25). The number of television homes in the CAA market exceeds 20 million. The CAA currently sponsors 23 sports with the addition of a football league in 2007 and women’s rowing in 2009. Male athletes compete for championships in baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and wrestling. Female athletes battle for conference titles in basketball, cross country, field hockey, golf, lacrosse, rowing, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field and volleyball. In 2009-10, 20 teams earned NCAA Tournament berths and 32 student-athletes received All-America honors. The conference has made its presence known nationally in men’s basketball with a league-record six teams advancing to postseason play in 2009-10. Conference champion Old Dominion made its third NCAA Tournament appearance in the last six years and knocked off Notre Dame in the first round. Northeastern and William and Mary received berths in the NIT. VCU posted five straight victories and captured the CBI championship. Hofstra also took part in the CBI and George Mason played in the CIT. In 2006, George Mason captured the nation’s imagination by becoming the first mid-major program since 1979 to reach the Final Four, knocking off powerhouses Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State and Connecticut along the way. The Patriots were ranked No. 8 in the final ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, which was the highest ever for a CAA team. A league-record seven CAA women’s basketball teams advanced to postseason play in 2009-10. James Madison represented the conference in the NCAA Tournament after capturing its first CAA championship since 1989. Delaware, Drexel, Hofstra, Old Dominion and VCU participated in the WNIT, with VCU advancing to the third round. Towson took part in the WBI. ODU, which won an NCAA-record 17 straight CAA titles from 1992-2008, boasts three national championships (1979, 1980, 1985) and was national runner-up in 1997.

The conference also excels in many other sports. CAA squads have combined to win 10 field hockey national titles since the championship began in 1981. Delaware and Towson have each reached the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship. Three women’s soccer teams have reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament in two of the past three seasons and at least one men’s soccer team has advanced to the final 16 of the NCAA Championship in five of the last eight years. In men’s cross country, William & Mary placed fifth nationally as a team in 2009 and had three runners earn All-America status. In the pool, George Mason’s Ashley Danner finished as the runner-up in the 100 breaststroke at the 2010 NCAA Championship and received All-America honors along with Towson’s Meredith Budner. The CAA has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Baseball Championship in nine of the last 13 years and has had at least 12 players selected in the last eight Major League Baseball drafts. The conference also boasts numerous All-Americans in tennis, golf, track and field, women’s lacrosse and wrestling. CAA member institutions are committed to excellence in the classroom. The Colonial Academic Alliance was created in 2002 by the league’s presidents with a goal of expanding their partnership to all aspects of university life outside of intercollegiate athletics. Among the programs already established are an undergraduate research conference, coordination of study abroad programs and granting visiting academic status to student-athletes traveling to an away contest so that they have access to libraries, academic resource centers and computer labs. In 2002, two faculty members from CAA institutions were awarded academia’s most coveted distinction – the Nobel Prize. John B. Fenn, a research professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, received the Nobel Prize for chemistry, and Vernon Smith, a professor of economics and law at George Mason University, shared the Nobel Prize in economic sciences. Commissioner Thomas E. Yeager has guided the CAA since its inception. The conference traces its roots back to 1983 when three of its current members- George Mason University, James Madison University, and the College of William and Mary - were aligned with East Carolina University, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Richmond as a basketball league (ECAC South). During the next two years, the league added 11 sports, acquired two new members (the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and American University) and decided to form a new association. The transformation from ECAC South to CAA took place on June 6, 1985. Charter members George Mason, James Madison, UNC Wilmington and William and Mary were joined by Old Dominion University in 1991 and by Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. The conference added the University of Delaware, Drexel University, Hofstra University and Towson University in 2001. Georgia State University and Northeastern University became members of the conference on July 1, 2005.
