Coaching Staff Head Coach Mike McGrath Mike McGrath enters his 16th season as head men’s basketball coach at the University of Chicago in 201415 sporting a record of 221-161, including a 134-78 mark in University Athletic Association play. A three-time UAA Coach of the Year, McGrath has guided Chicago to an NCAA Division III elite eight berth and sweet 16 appearance, as well as four UAA titles. On Nov. 26, 2013, McGrath passed Joseph Stampf to become the school’s all-time leader in wins with 209. McGrath garnered UAA Coach of the Year accolades in 2007-08 after leading the Maroons to their second straight UAA championship and NCAA Division III tournament appearance. Chicago, which finished 18-8 overall and 11-3 in conference play, ranked 25th in the final D3hoops.com coaches poll. In 2000-01, McGrath guided the Maroons to their best-ever NCAA Division III finish, as Chicago advanced to the national elite eight. McGrath enjoyed a highly successful debut campaign in 1999-00, as he led the Maroons to a 23-4 record, the UAA title, and an NCAA Division III sweet 16 appearance. Over his career at UChicago, McGrath has been named Illinois Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) Coach of the Year four times - 2000, 2001, 2007, 2008. McGrath spent seven years as an assistant coach to Pat Cunningham from 1992-99. During that time, McGrath helped lead the Maroons to an overall record of 107-73 (.594), including an 82-23 mark (.781) from 1995-99. Under Cunningham and McGrath, Chicago garnered two UAA championships and advanced to the NCAA Division III sweet 16 on two occasions. During McGrath’s 20 years as head and assistant coach, Chicago teams have compiled a combined record of 287-199 (.590), won six conference championships, and made six national postseason appearances. McGrath has been actively involved in the National Association of Basketball Coaches, having represented the NABC Division III Congress as chair of the Marketing and Promotion Committee and been instrumental in organizing the annual NABC Division III All-Star Game as Chair of the Nominating Committee. McGrath also served a four-year stint on the NCAA Midwest Region Advisory Committee, and from 2010-12, he served as a member of the NCAA Division III Men’s Basketball Committee, the organization responsible for selecting and bracketing teams for the NCAA tournament. McGrath is a 1992 graduate of DePauw University, where he spent three years as a student assistant coach. During his tenure at DePauw, the Tigers advanced to the 1990 NCAA Division III championship game. In 2003, McGrath and the other members of that team were inducted into the DePauw Athletics Hall of Fame. A native of Bartlett, Ill., McGrath earned a master’s degree in sports management from the United States Sports Academy in 2004. He resides in Chicago with his wife, Kari.

Assistant Coach Jason Petti Jason Petti enters his fourth season with the UChicago staff in 2014-15. He was named full-time assistant coach in May 2013 after serving as volunteer assistant coach for two seasons. A graduate of North Central College, where he earned a degree in exercise science, Petti spent three years coaching at Wheaton-Warrenville South High School prior to joining the Maroons. During that time, Petti served as a varsity assistant and head coach of the freshman team for three seasons.

Assistant Coach Jim Prunty Jim Prunty is in his ninth season at University of Chicago and his 39th season of coaching overall in 2014-15. Prior to joining the staff at the University of Chicago, he was the Head Basketball Coach at St. Rita and York High Schools. In June of 2014, he retired as the Athletic Director at Saint Ignatius College Prep. Jim served as the President of the Chicago Catholic League and represented the city of Chicago as the Division 1 Representative for the Illinois Athletic Directors Association, the Illinois High School Association Legislative Commission and the Board of Directors of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA). He is a member of the Chicago Catholic League Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the IBCA Hall of Fame. Jim has been married to his wife, Maureen, for 38 years and they have three children and seven grandchildren.

Ratner Athletics Center In the fall of 2003, UChicago Athletics entered a new era with the opening of the $51 million Gerald Ratner Athletics Center. Designed by famed architect Cesar Pelli, the 150,000-square-foot facility includes a 1,658-seat competition gymnasium which is home to the UChicago basketball, volleyball and wrestling teams. In addition to the competition gymnasium, the facility features the 50-meter Myers-McLoraine Pool, the Bernard J. DelGiorno Fitness Center, a dance room, classrooms, the Athletics Hall of Fame, locker rooms, offices and saunas.

• The facility received awards from the American Council of Engineering Companies, the American Institute of Steel Construction, and the Consulting Engineers Council of Illinois for its excellence in engineering and design. • The Ratner Athletics Center is named in honor of Gerald Ratner (A.B.’35, J.D.’37), an outfielder at UChicago during its days as a member of the Big Ten Conference. • In 11 years under Head Coach Mike McGrath, the Maroons have posted a 95-45 overall record and a 55-22 UAA mark at Ratner.

Ratner Athletics Center

The Ratner Athletics Center competition gym has been the site for the McDonald’s All-American

Games POWERADE Jam Fest over the past three years. The top 48 boys and girls in the country are invited to compete in a Skills Competition, Three-Point Shootout and Slam Dunk Contest. Last year’s participants included Jahlil Okafor and Greyson Allen.

Ratner was also the site for the first round and championships games of the 2013-14 Chicago Catholic

League (CLL) Tournament. The league was formed in 1912 as a way to give the all-male Catholic schools interscholastic competition. Charter members included Loyola Academy, St. Cyril (Mt. Carmel), DePaul Academy, St. Philip, St. Ignatius, De La Salle, Cathedral and St. Stanislaus. However, the tournament was not added until 2013 as a way to bring about one single champion. In the past, there would be one winner from each division, north and south.

Previously, the Ratner Athletics Center hosted the 2013 Chicago United Hoops Classic, where two teams of

high school players, South and West, competed against one another. Put together to bring awareness to senseless acts of street violence, the Chicago United Hoops Classic teaches kids to learn character and leadership off the court and invest in an education.

Maroons in the Community

The University of Chicago men’s basketball program has been actively involved in community service, having participated for many years in two NABC reading programs as well as the American Cancer Society’s “Relay For Life.” The Maroons have visited local grammar and middle schools in the Chicago Public School System to promote literacy as part of the NABC “Dream to Read” and “Ticket to Reading Rewards” programs. Players talk about the value of reading and also read to students. Students were given free tickets to a UChicago basketball game as part of the rewards program. For the past six years, the men’s basketball program has participated in the American Cancer Society “Relay for Life” on campus. Pledges are taken for the Relay which lasts overnight. In 2011, the UChicago men’s and women’s basketball teams combined to raise more than $7,500, and the men’s squad has raised more than $15,000 over those four years for cancer research.

Travel at UChicago

Maroons in South America in 2009 UChicago at Youth Clinic in Ireland in 2012

Travel to exciting destinations, both international and domestic, has been a significant feature of the Chicago basketball program. Most recently, the Maroons men’s and women’s basketball teams made a joint trip to Ireland from September 10-20, 2012. The trip to Ireland is the third such trip the Maroons have made, which included Italy in 2006 and Argentina and Chile in 2009. “There are a couple great things that come out of the trip,” said Head Coach Mike McGrath. “First, as a basketball team, you want your group to come together and spend a lot of time together. Our kids already do that, but it’s different on a foreign trip like this. The relationships that develop and how that impacts a basketball team are huge. That’s probably our biggest goal. Obviously, the added 10 days of practice before we go is a great asset to our team for the upcoming year.” “Another thing we hope to get out of it is the cultural experience for our guys,” McGrath continued. “We’re not just going on vacation and not just going to play basketball. A lot of our activities are geared around getting to know the culture. That’s an important part of the collegiate experience. And then, one of the biggest things we try to do through this process is to develop a more global feel. Global in terms of the people who have contributed to this program over the 21 years I’ve been here and the connections they have to each other - the common experiences they’ve shared and what it means to be a basketball player at the University of Chicago and how that connects people.” The three main cities that the teams stayed in were Dublin, Galway and Killarney. Side visits were also made to Coonemara, Dingle and Adare. The packed itinerary included coaching a youth basketball clinic in Galway; the Irish National Stud Farm (horses); Bunratty Castle; the cliffs of Moher; hurling and Irish football game instruction; a boat trip on the Atlantic Ocean; Trinity College and the Book of Kells; and a team dinner in Dublin that featured a full roasted pig. Both UChicago basketball squads played one game against Killester, an Irish Pro League team in Dublin. The generosity of Chicago’s basketball alumni made the trip possible for the current players and staff. “In big picture terms, we are able to take this trip because of the support of our former players,” McGrath said. “We will have close to 100 percent funding in the form of donations from our alumni base. They make this trip possible and they are willing to do things to make the student-athlete experience at Chicago better. That’s one of the real neat aspects of what we are doing.” On the final day in Ireland, senior Matt MacKenzie reflected on the trip, “Getting to experience Ireland with a group of guys this close has been an amazing experience. Alumni Travis Wenstrom and Tim O’Toole were able to make it for our pig roast dinner from their jobs in London, which shows the commitment former players still show to the program. Our trip would not be possible without alumni like Travis and Tim, and everyone on the team cannot thank them enough for their support.” During the 2013-14 regular season, the Maroons logged more than 3,500 air miles as they navigated their 25-game slate with traditional weekend trips to UAA host cities New York, Boston, Atlanta, St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Rochester. In addition to the annual UAA travel, the Maroons in recent years have visited cities throughout the country including San Antonio, Baltimore, Memphis, Indianapolis, Minneapolis-St. Paul and Milwaukee.

Alumni Reflections On the court, the University of Chicago men’s basketball classes of 2000, 2005, and 2010 rank Class of 2000 (15th-year anniversary) as some of the most successful in school history. The trio have a combined record of 196-113 - Steve Murphy - Eric Nelson (.634 winning percentage) and five UAA Championships during their careers. - Kurt Riemer The 2014-15 season marks the 15th-year, 10th-year and 5th-year anniversaries for those three classes. Looking back on their college years, these former Maroons reflect on how the academ- Cumulative record: 87-20 ics, the basketball team and campus life shaped their lives. Team Accomplishments: • •

Academics “I don’t think I fully appreciated the academic environment I was privileged to be a part of until I graduated. The number of intellectually-gifted professors and students that I was surrounded by and the incredible environment of learning became clearer to me as the years passed beyond graduation. The curriculum was challenging, forced me to think in ways I had never thought before, and provided me the opportunity to meet some of the smartest people I know. I will always be grateful for my time at the University of Chicago and how that time has played a major part in the person I am today.” – Steve Murphy, Class of 2000 “More than anything, my education at U of C helped me think for myself and not be afraid to take my own path. That foundation was really helpful when I decided to leave a fairly comfortable career to pursue a more entrepreneurial one.” – Brian Cuttica, Class of 2005 “One thing that I truly believe is that UChicago taught me how to think critically and outside the box. The classes were great but the overall learning experience was what I enjoyed the most. Also, being able to study abroad in Greece is something that I will never forget.” – Marek Kowalewski, Class of 2010

Three UAA Championships Reached Sweet 16 Round of NCAA Tournament three times

Individual Accomplishments: •

Kurt Riemer: All-UAA, ranks No. 7 in career three-point percentage (.405) in school history.

“One of the major components of why I enjoyed my time playing basketball at U of C (and why we were successful in making it to three Sweet 16 appearances in four years) was my teammates. I truly believe those guys would have been my friends even if we did not play basketball together. As a result of spending so much time together in good and bad times, we created bonds that will last a lifetime. The ability to work together for a common goal is something that is learned in sports, but can be applied to many areas in a person’s life and is a key component of success.” – Steve Murphy

Justin and Jessie Waldie

“As incoming freshmen, our class was fortunate to be walking onto a very successful and very talented team. It was a team that was filled with players that were individually talented, but who were singularly focused on team success and not individual achievement. Becoming part of that team instilled in us that team concept of the whole being stronger than the individual parts. Also, because of the talent and success of that team, it meant that we had to work very hard to be a part of and continue that success on the court.” – Kurt Riemer, Class of 2000 “I’m still bitter that the trips to Ireland and other far-off places started the year after I left, but I have great memories nonetheless. Anyone who plays sports knows you build a special bond with teammates. It’s hard to pinpoint, but I see guys from the team after not talking to them for years and we don’t even miss a beat.” – Brian Cuttica, Class of 2005

Class of 2005 (10th-year anniversary)

“I never met a group of guys that I loved more. Some of those guys are my best friends today. The guys on the team made coming to practice easy, even on a Saturday morning in January.” – Marek Kowalewski, Class of 2010

Cumulative record: 52-48

Individual Accomplishments: • •

Brian Cuttica: Ranks No. 7 in career assists (235) and No. 10 in career three-pointers (128) in school history. Mike Dolezal: Ranks No. 2 in career blocks (91) in school history.

“I am appreciative towards my time at the University of Chicago. I was able to form friendships that are still a part of my life. The opportunity to play college basketball, and travel all over the country, will be something I cherish for the rest of my life.” – Mike Dolezal

Alumni Reflections Campus & City “Playing basketball in college, simply put, was the time of my life. The friends I made, games we won and time spent together are some of my most fond memories. These friends during my four years remain my closest friends. I have gone on to see many get married, have kids, become successful. Still, when we get together, we often talk about the great times we had during our four years. Being in Chicago and playing basketball with my best friends is a time I will remember forever.” – Eric Nelson, Class of 2000

Cumulative record: 57-45 Team Accomplishments: • •

Individual Accomplishments:

“My friends and I found plenty of fun at Chicago, both on campus and in the city. During our years on campus, we saw great investments in student life – beautiful new dorms and dining halls, a world-class athletics facility, great concerts and student events, the list goes on. All of these things, and a diverse and talented student body, created a fun and dynamic atmosphere on campus.” – Justin Waldie, Class of 2005 “Being in Hyde Park was great. There are few places in the city that have the history that Hyde Park does. Also, being so close to downtown was a bonus.” – Marek Kowalewski, Class of 2010

Two UAA Championships Two NCAA Tournament appearances

Jake Pancratz: All-UAA, ranks No. 2 in school history in assists (332), No. 2 in three-pointers made (197) and No. 4 in career steals (104) John Kinsella: All-UAA

“More than any specific game or practice, being part of the UChicago basketball program surrounded me with people who truly shaped the man I am today. My former teammates are my closest friends. I could not ask for anything greater than the friendships I made playing basketball at Chicago. The two UAA championships and tournament trips were pretty fun times, but they would not have meant nearly as much if they had not been accomplished with the people involved.” – John Bonelli

Traditions The “C” Logo

The Order of the “C”

The University of Chicago athletics emblem underwent several changes during the institution’s early years. The first football team in 1892 sported no recognizable emblem on its uniforms. In an effort to provide the team with an identity, the letters “UC” were cut out of brown paper and pasted on the players’ uniforms. In the spring of 1893, the emblem was modified into the form of a monogram that the baseball team incorporated on its uniforms. A single letter was used for the first time in 1894 when the football and track squads displayed an oblong “C” on their uniforms. That emblem remained in existence until 1897 when it was replaced by a “C” in large, round type. Then in 1898, Maroon teams adopted the Chicago “C” emblem, which has been worn to the present day.

The Undergraduate Order of the C is the body of varsity lettermen whose object is to support the cause of athletics at the University. This association works together to “keep the memory of the University athletic life and which shall perpetuate the athletic honor and traditions of our Alma Mater.” All undergraduate University men who have been awarded the right to wear the “C” are eligible for membership in this organization. They become members in full standing upon signing the roll of membership at the annual meeting. The annual banquets for the OOC began in 1904 and were initially organized by legendary football coach Amos Alonzo Stagg and the University’s first president, William Rainey Harper. In 1906, the OOC formally adopted a constitution and elected its first officers, making it the nation’s oldest varsity lettermen’s group.

Maroon, Maroons & The Phoenix Maroon and “Maroons” became the University of Chicago’s official color and nickname, respectively, at a meeting of students and faculty on May 5, 1894. Before the University held its first classes on October 1, 1892, the Board of Trustees had selected goldenrod (yellow) as the school’s official color. By 1894, however, Chicago’s legendary football coach Amos Alonzo Stagg believed that a change was necessary. “The yellow ran, soiled easily, and had a regrettable symbolism which our opponents might not be above commenting upon,” said Stagg in his autobiography, Touchdown! Because maroon was not already in use by any major school in the Midwest, Stagg and his associate J.E. Raycroft brought a selection of maroon shades to the 1894 meeting of students and faculty. The meeting attendees made a choice from those ribbons, and the baseball team appeared in that color during its final games of the 1894 season. On July 21, 1894, the first mention of a U. of C. athletic team as “Maroons” appeared in the Chicago Tribune in an article about the baseball team. The Phoenix – which is featured as part of the University’s official coat of arms, or shield – serves as the school’s mascot. The University of Chicago Board of Trustees adopted the shield in 1910.

Fight Song: “Wave the Flag” Wave the Flag (For Old Chicago) is the fight song for the Maroons. It was traditionally sung at midfield after each home victory. The lyrics were written by Gordon Erickson in 1929.

“Wave the flag of old Chicago, Maroon the color grand. Ever shall her team be victors, Known throughout the land. With the grand old man to lead them, Without a peer they’ll stand. Wave again the dear old banner, For they’re heroes, every man!”

The University of Chicago The University of Chicago is one of the world’s great intellectual communities and centers of learning. It has achieved particular distinction in faculty scholarship, the training of graduate students, and for its renowned undergraduate education that emphasizes critical thinking, intellectual depth, and cultural breadth. Founded in 1890 by John D. Rockefeller, the University opened its doors for classes on October 1, 1892, with an enrollment of 594 students. President William Rainey Harper presided over a faculty of 103, which included eight former college presidents. Today, the University features a total enrollment of approximately 15,149 students — including more than 5,027 undergraduates — and a 2,211-member faculty. The University is private, nondenominational, and coeducational, and it includes the undergraduate College, four graduate divisions, six graduate professional schools, the library, the Graham Center of General Studies, and the University of Chicago Press. The University also features several cultural resources, including the Oriental Institute Museum, Court Theatre, Renaissance Society, and the Smart Museum of Art. Extending along both sides of the Midway Plaisance, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and used for the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, the University occupies a 190-acre campus. The English collegiate Gothic style set the general tone for the design and development of the campus. Around a series of tree-shaded quadrangles, imposing buildings of gray limestone with red-tile roofs, and deep-set rectangular windows show off elaborate ornamentation, gargoyles and chimeras, and decorated towers. These quadrangles are dominated by Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, with its 207-foot tower, and by the Joseph Regenstein Library, one of the largest academic libraries in the United States. Many campus structures have been designated national historic landmarks, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House and the site of the first controlled, self-sustaining nuclear reaction marked by the Henry Moore sculpture Nuclear Energy. Chicago has had a major impact on American higher education — inventing the four-quarter system, developing extension courses and programs in the liberal arts for adults, establishing a coherent program of general education for undergraduates, and initiating a full-time medical school teaching faculty. Chicago also pioneered orientation week and gives the nation’s oldest teaching awards. Since the University’s founding, more than 80 recipients of the Nobel Prize have been students, researchers, or faculty. The University is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities. About 65 percent of the University’s faculty and their families and nearly all of its students live in the Hyde Park neighborhood. One of Chicago’s biggest tourist attractions, the Museum of Science and Industry, is located here, as well as the DuSable Museum of African-American History and the Weiss Museum of Judaica. Just 15 minutes north of Hyde Park is the Chicago Loop, where students and faculty regularly attend an array of theater, movies, art exhibits, museums, and restaurants. Some of Chicago’s main cultural attractions are the Art Institute, the Lyric Opera, the Chicago Symphony, the Goodman Theatre, and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Scores of other professional and community theater, dance, and visual arts organizations are active in the city. Architecturally, Chicago is the home of many major developments in 20thcentury architecture and urban design. One of the nation’s greatest sports cities, Chicago is the home of two Major League Baseball teams – the White Sox and the Cubs – as well as the National Basketball Association Bulls, the National Football League Bears, the National Hockey League Blackhawks, the Major League Soccer Fire, and the Women’s National Basketball Association Sky.

Athletics at UChicago University of Chicago Athletics aims to enrich the life of the whole person. We are invested in competitive excellence as we challenge our scholar-athletes to develop into their best selves as athletes, teammates, students and ultimately, citizens in the world. As athletes they embody physical strength and learn the value of movement to incorporate healthy activity and habits into their lives. Through sport we are committed to teaching how to work collaboratively to reach performance goals, how to embrace diversity of thought and culture, how to persevere through failure with resiliency, how to compete with integrity. Athletics strives to engage our community through fitness and recreation to encourage holistic and healthy living; to build confidence; and to confront challenges physically and mentally. Excellence – Education – Integrity - ALL IN!

The UAA UChicago, which sponsors 19 intercollegiate sports, is a charter member of the University Athletic Association, an NCAA Division III conference formed in 1986 as a bold statement of what college athletics can and should be — that it is highly desirable and possible for a group of committed institutions to seek excellence in athletics while holding the student-athlete and the institution’s academic mission as the center of focus. The eight members of the UAA include Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University, Case Western Reserve University, Emory University, New York University, the University of Chicago, the University of Rochester, and Washington University in St. Louis. With its membership in the UAA, UChicago offers its student-athletes the opportunity to compete against athletes and teams from among the top research institutions in the country, as well as travel opportunities comparable to those offered by members of major Division I conferences. UChicago has played a major role in helping the UAA attain its goal of achieving the proper balance between athletics and academics. In Reclaiming the Game: College Sports and Education Values, author William Bowen –– president of the Mellon Foundation –– posed the question, “How has the UAA managed to mount what is, by all signs, a successful intercollegiate program without paying the academic price that is so evident in other similar college athletics conferences?” Bowen continued, “The active involvement of the University of Chicago, with its emphasis on core academic values, has without question been a help in achieving and maintaining this policy.”

Success on the Playing Field In 2013-14, UChicago finished 16th in the nation among 326 NCAA Division III institutions in the final standings for the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup, which recognizes the top overall athletic programs in the country. UChicago teams notched national top-10 finishes in women’s cross country (4th), men’s swimming and diving (10th) and women’s swimming and diving (10th). The Maroons also won UAA Championships in volleyball, women’s cross country and women’s indoor track and field. That same year, the Maroons also featured 29 All-Americans, 37 national qualifiers, 13 all-region selections, four UAA MVPs and 128 All-UAA performers.

Athletes & Academic Excellence The intercollegiate program at the University of Chicago directly supports the College’s commitment to excellence, and helps to produce scholar-athletes whose primary focus is on their academic achievements. The University of Chicago has a long history of outstanding student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom. During the University of Chicago’s early years as a member of the Big Ten Conference, the athletics program counted numerous distinguished scholar-athletes among its ranks, including 1910 Rhodes Scholar Edwin Hubble, a basketball player who later became a distinguished scientist for whom the Hubble Space Telescope is named. UChicago has furthered that tradition in recent years as its student-athletes have continued to compile an extraordinary record of academic and athletic accomplishment, highlighted by four Rhodes Scholars since 1996, and 265 UAA All-Academic Recognition Award recipients in 2013-14.

Award-Winning Facility In the fall of 2003, Chicago Athletics entered a new era with the opening of the $51 million Gerald Ratner Athletics Center. Designed by famed architect Cesar Pelli, the 150,000-square-foot facility includes a 1,658-seat competition gymnasium which is home to the Chicago basketball, volleyball, and wrestling teams. In addition to the competition gymnasium, the facility features the 50-meter Myers-McLoraine Pool, the Bernard J. DelGiorno Fitness Center, a dance room, classrooms, the Athletics Hall of Fame, locker rooms, offices, and saunas. In short, the University of Chicago provides student-athletes with what might be the best balance in higher education: an extraordinary commitment to academic excellence recognized all over the world, a high-quality intercollegiate athletics program consistent with its academic mission, unique conference travel and competition, and outstanding athletics and recreational facilities.

UAA & NCAA Division III The UAA

NCAA Division III

In 1987, Chicago became a charter member of a new and unique NCAA Division III conference, the University Athletic Association. Comprised of some of the nation’s leading research institutions, UAA members include Brandeis University, Carnegie Mellon University, Case Western Reserve University, Emory University, New York University, the University of Rochester, and Washington University in St. Louis. Since its founding, the UAA has continued to serve as a bold statement of the vision of its founders — that the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence are complementary goals and can be achieved without the compromise of one by the other. Implicit in this vision are three assumptions: • The academic enterprise is the primary element. Studentathletes are just that — students first and athletes second. • Athletic excellence is not to be confused with a win-at-allcosts attitude. It properly relates to the caliber of experience offered to students who participate in intercollegiate athletics. • Athletics should not only complement the academic experience, but should also reflect the quality of the academic environment within which they exist. Division III is an approach to athletics — not a synonym for third-rate. Since joining the UAA, Chicago teams have captured 50 conference championships, made 66 NCAA tournament appearances, and posted nine national top-four finishes. In addition, the Maroons have claimed 15 NCAA individual titles and three have been selected as the national player of the year.

The University of Chicago has competed at the NCAA Division III level since it was established in 1973. The largest of the three NCAA Divisions, Division III counted as members 446 institutions (20 percent public, 80 percent private) in 2012-13.

The UAA in Theory • Academic excellence and athletic excellence are not mutually exclusive. • The academic enterprise is the primary element. • Athletic excellence properly relates to the caliber of experience offered to students. • Athletic programs should reflect the quality of the academic environment within which they exist. • A consistent and challenging level of athletic competition should be provided for both women and men.

The UAA in Practice • In 2013-14, 35 student-athletes from UAA institutions were recognized as CoSIDA Academic All-Americans and 13 were named NCAA Postgraduate Scholars. • 169 UAA student-athletes received All-America honors with eight garnering individual national championships. • In 2013-14 NCAA championship competition, 20 UAA teams finished in the top 10 in their national championships, while another 12 finished in the top 20.

28

What is the NCAA Division III? • Division III features student-athletes who are subject to the same admission standards, academic standards, housing, and support services as the general student body. Division III studentathletes are not permitted to receive athletically-related financial aid. • Division III offers an intense and competitive athletics environment for student-athletes who play for the love of the game, without the obligation of an athletics scholarship. • Division III athletics departments place special importance on the impact of athletics on the participants rather than on the spectators. The student-athlete’s experience is of paramount concern. • Division III athletics provides a well-rounded collegiate experience that involves a balance of rigorous academics, competitive athletics, and the opportunity to pursue the multitude of other co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities. • Division III places primary emphasis on regional in-season and conference competition, while also offering 36 national championships annually. • Division III playing season and eligibility standards minimize conflicts between athletics and academics, allowing studentathletes to focus on their academic programs and the achievement of a degree. • Division III athletics departments are dedicated to offering broad-based programs with a high number and wide range of athletics participation opportunities for both men and women. • Division III affords student-athletes the opportunity to discover valuable lessons in teamwork, discipline, perseverance, and leadership, which in turn make student-athletes better students and responsible citizens. • Division III encourages student-athletes to take advantage of the many opportunities available to them, both within and beyond athletics, so that they may develop their full potential as students, athletes, and citizens.
