Duquesne’s Tabata Named to NCAA Prestigious Academic Cabinet

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- Duquesne University junior women’s soccer goalkeeper Devon Tabata has been selected to represent the Atlantic 10 Conference as a member of the prestigious NCAA Division I Academic Cabinet.

Tabata is the first member of the Atlantic 10 to serve on the Academic Cabinet since former La Salle Faculty Athletic Representative Dr. Annette O’Connor. Tabata also is the first A-10 student-athlete to serve on an NCAA Cabinet in over five years. Her two-year appointment begins immediately and her first meeting, the body’s next meeting is Tuesday and Wednesday, February 4 and 5 in Indianapolis.  

A member of the A-10’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Tabata is no stranger to working with the NCAA on a national level.  In July, Tabata was named to the NCAA Division I SAAC.

“Being appointed to an NCAA cabinet is an outstanding opportunity," stated A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade. “As our representative on the NCAA Division I SAAC, Devon has already proven her abilities as a leader, and this appointment is an affirmation of those abilities. We are pleased to have her represent the Atlantic 10 Conference on an NCAA Cabinet."

The cabinet is made up of 22 members that represent different conferences in Division I.  Tabata is the one member of the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee that serves as a member of the cabinet in an advisory capacity. 

The Academic Cabinet provides a wide variety of services to the NCAA and its membership.  The cabinet is responsible for review and consideration of the portions of Division I legislation that relate to principles of sound academic requirements. 

“I am honored and excited for the opportunity to represent the voice of student-athletes within the NCAA governance system,” said Tabata. “The opportunity to serve on the Academic Cabinet was of particular interest because of my personal belief in the student-first philosophy and making sure that it remains a focus.”  

The cabinet also works with the NCAA Division II governance structure to ensure that consistent policies exist when possible, while maintaining each division's philosophy and legislative intent.

The group also works on policy or legislative recommendations concerning relationships between the Association and the nation's two-year colleges as represented by established regional and national organizations. The cabinet also oversees academic policies, establishes, manages and monitors eligibility standards-related policies; and administers waivers as specified by legislation and/or policy. 

"It was clear upon first meeting Devon, she would be a campus leader," said Duquesne's Assistant Athletic Director for Student Services & Senior Woman Administrator Sherene Brantley. "She has more than lived up to that expectation and is always a great representative. I am thrilled she now has another opportunity to increase the sphere of her influence."

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Tabata has started 30 matches in net for the Dukes during her first three seasons.  Tabata has made 176 saves and has recorded seven shutouts.  Tabata is majoring in finance and is a member of Duquesne’s Dean’s List, the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll, Duquesne’s Director of Athletics' Honor Roll and was named the 2013 Duquesne Student-Athlete of the Year.
