ATHLETICS + ACADEMICS = THE PERFECT EQUATION
At no time in the history of the Atlantic 10 Conference have the league's presidents and chancellors made as strong a commitment to ensuring that the academic and athletics equation works as now. From addressing the time constraints placed upon student-athletes to honoring their accomplishments, the A-10's presidents and chancellors have targeted the student-athlete experience as their primary focus.
What one newspaper once called "the hyphenated enigma," the Atlantic 10 has strived to make "student-athlete" not a term, but a real person, one whose experience in the classroom and in the playing venue befit higher education.
