The National Collegiate Athletic Association, or NCAA, is "dedicated to safeguarding the well-being of student-athletes and equipping them with the skills to succeed on the playing field, in the classroom and throughout life."
"...NCAA members – mostly colleges and universities, but also conferences and affiliated groups – work together to create the framework of rules for fair and safe competition."
"Those rules are administered by NCAA national office staff, which also organizes national championships and provides other resources to support student-athletes and the schools they attend. The NCAA membership and national office work together to help more than 460,000 student-athletes develop their leadership, confidence, discipline and teamwork through college sports." (From ncaa.org)
