Cornell’s Director of Athletics Andy Noel and Associate Athletic Director Steve Erber are in the background. At the meeting, which was called by the NCAA, the committee presented the information they obtained from a review of the University’s Athletics Department and its compliance with NCAA regulations. The review, which is completed every 10 years, evaluates the University’s Athletic Department on three criteria: governance, academic integrity and student services. The Athletic Department also presented the results obtained from a department-wide internal review. The University met NCAA standards on all grounds.
