HEARING THURSDAY, MARCH 8, 2007
An organization should, by definition, function
organically, which means that its purpose should
determine its structure, rather than the other
way around, and that it should function as a
community rather than a hierarchy, and offer
autonomy to its members, along with tests,
opportunities, and rewards, because ultimately an
organization is merely the means, not the end.
Since the release and full use of the
individuals potential is the organizations true
task, all organizations must provide for the
growth and development of their members and find
ways of offering them opportunities for such
growth and development. This is the one true
mission of all organizations and the principal
challenge to todays organizations. Warren
Bennis

VISION That some have succeeded greatly is
proof that others can as well. Abraham
Lincoln The Department of Intercollegiate
Athletics will gain continued and even greater
national recognition for our advancement and
success in the areas of student-athlete welfare,
academic performance, athletic performance,
sportsmanship and ethical conduct, gender equity
and fiscal integrity. Our institution will be
synonymous with winning championships with class
and operating with the highest level of
integrity. The passion and enthusiasm displayed
by those affiliated with our athletics programs
will be unmatched. We will bring positive
recognition to the University and establish a
national reputation for being innovative and
progressive. We will build our student-athletes
character and instill the proper values which
allow them to become model citizens and
contributors to society after they leave our
great university. MISSION If you believe you
can do a thing or you believe you cannot, in
either case, you are probably right. Henry
Ford It is the mission of Department of
Intercollegiate Athletics to serve the needs of
our student-athletes in their endeavors to
achieve excellence academically and athletically.
We must provide a nurturing environment that
inspires student-athletes to learn and prepares
them to become tomorrows leaders. The athletics
department is dedicated to the educational
mission of the institution, maintains an
appreciation of and support for the equitable
opportunities for all student-athletes and staff,

conduct and sportsmanship including respect for
self and others at all times, and emphasizes

PHILOSOPHY To achieve all that is possible, you
must attempt the impossible. To be all that you
can, you must dream of being more.
Unknown The Department of Athletics promotes
excellence in athletics without compromising
excellence in academics or integrity in its
commitment to rules or conduct. Student-athletes
are encouraged by the coaching and administrative
staff to maintain a balance between athletics,
academics, and the social aspects of being a
college student. It is believed that athletic
participation gives an added dimension to the
student's overall college experience and provides
an opportunity for social, moral, emotional and
cultural growth and development. The athletic
programs strive to create traits that, once
acquired, will carry over and benefit
student-athletes in their personal and
professional endeavors. The University maintains
a tradition of excellence. The Department of
Athletics continues to uphold this tradition by
striving to build athletic teams and individuals
of championship caliber. Its staff members work
to instill in student-athletes an appreciation
for hard work, perseverance and pride in
accomplishment. It is believed these attributes
will be utilized throughout the student-athlete's
life. CORE VALUES The future belongs to the
competent. Brian Tracy ?Integrity ?Respect ?Ba

Two things seemed pretty apparent to me. One
was, that in order to be a Mississippi River
pilot a man had got to learn more than any one
man ought to be allowed to know and the other
was, that he must learn it all over again in a
different way every 24 hours. Mark Twain, Life

Far better to dare mighty things, to win
glorious triumphs, even though checkered by
failure, than to take rank with those poor

Note The goals outlined above are for
conceptual purposes only and may not be
representative of the actual goals that are
adopted by the athletics department. These goals
should reflect a realistic, but ambitious,
improvement of the current accomplishments in
each area. After a fair assessment period,
long-term goals and strategies will be developed
and implemented allowing for staff input. Some
long-term goals (5 years) might include increase
the number of student-athletes competing for
conference and national academic awards, achieve
a position of national leadership by having at
least half of our sports compete in NCAA
post-season play, comply with Title IX in both
spirit and law, increase the departments annual
operating budget to meet departmental needs and
achieve revenue levels that allow the athletics
department to become less reliant upon the
institution to fund its operations.

A leader is, by definition, an innovator. He
does things other people havent done or dont
do. He does things in advance of other people.
He makes new things. He makes old things new.
Having learned from the past, he lives in the
present, with one eye on the future. And each
leader puts it all together in a different way.
To do that, leaders must be right-brain, as well
as left-brain, thinkers. They must be intuitive,
conceptual, synthesizing and artistic. Warren

  • VALUE OF ATHLETICS
  • You have to pay the price. You will find that
    everything in life exacts a price, and you will
    have to decide whether the price is worth the
    prize. Sam Nunn
  • There is a place in the university community for
    intercollegiate athletics programs conducted with
    honesty, integrity and appropriate priorities.
    We must reflect the institutional mission and
    values in our words and actions. Whether we like
    it or not, the media has made the department of
    athletics the universitys most visible
    ambassador. The athletics department is a window
    to the community and the region. Athletics
    departments must develop students and ensure that
    it enhances the college experience but does not
    engulf it. In support of the universitys
    mission to enrich the lives of those we serve,
    the athletics department is committed to
    preparing student-athletes for leadership in a

  • UTC ATHLETICS A SOUND INVESTMENT
  • In addition to the many valuable attributes that
    athletics brings to a campus environment, an
    investment in the athletics department is an
    investment in the university.
  • Currently, the university provides the athletics
    department with 2,896,163 in general support and
    2,525,124 in fee allocations for a total of
    5,421,287. Of this total, 2,972,312 is paid
    back to the university in the form of
    grant-in-aids and an additional 2,559,720 is
    used to cover salary and wages for a total of
    5,532,032 (a difference of 110,745). All other
    operating expenses are covered using
    athletics-generated revenues. Additional dollars
    resulting from athletics flow back into the
    institution indirectly from activities such as
    summer camps, student recruitment, food services
    (team meals), concessions and parking revenues,
    housing, licensing and merchandising, enhanced
    visibility and marketing exposure, fundraising,
    community partnerships, and other ancillary
    activities.
  • This year, there are 90 walk-on student-athletes
    attending the university 62 in-state and 28
    out-of-state students. As a group, they pay
    approximately 685,008 in tuition. Assuming that
    many of them choose to live on-campus, they also
    contribute the 525 minimum meal requirement
    estimated at 396,000 in additional revenues.
    This does not take into account any other
    revenues related to books or housing.
  • Athletics is the universitys primary source of
    marketing and branding. UTC athletics teams and
    facilities are featured on radio and television
    networks across the globe. The official
    athletics site, GoMocs.com, continues to be a
    visible public relations tool receiving over
    15,000,000 hits, or an average of 50,500 hits per
    day. We enjoy marketing and sponsorship
    relationships with many local, regional and even
    national organizations. Many times, these
    partnerships offer benefits beyond just the
    revenues. For example, our relationship with
    Memorial Hospital provides funding, equipment,
    expertise and services which enhance our
    athletics training operations and benefit the
    students-athletes and our graduate athletics
    trainers.
  • Our student-athletes, coaches and staff are
    involved in various community projects such as
    the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure, Blood
    Assurance blood drives, Mentors in Violence
    Prevention, the Community Kitchen, Habitat for
    Humanity, Special Olympics, and Reading Programs
    at area Elementary Schools. The Athletics
    Department donates hundreds of tickets to
    athletics events annually to assist non-profit
    organizations with fundraisers and community
    service programs.
  • Internship opportunities continue to be offered
    to students from the Department of Health Human
    Performance providing valuable experience to
    students and needed event support to the
    athletics department.

coupled with our own desire and expectation to
achieve excellence on and off the playing
surfaces, have been considered in the budget

  • CONTINUING CHALLENGES AND NEEDS
  • The day soldiers stop bringing you their
    problems is the day you have stopped leading
    them. They have either lost confidence that you
    can help them or concluded that you do not care.
    Either case is a failure of leadership. Colin

  • Commitment to comply with Title IX in both spirit
    and law
  • Chronic deficits and/or lack of resources in

    etc.)
  • Existing debt service (225,000/year) for both
    Finley and Frost Stadiums
  • Insufficient number of administrative personnel
    and an absence of training for existing staff
