Salisbury University, a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's (NCAA) Division III, offers 19 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In addition to NCAA membership, SU competes as a member of the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) and the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC).
As a member of the NCAA's Division III, Salisbury University places the highest priority on the overall quality of the educational experience. In doing so, it seeks to strengthen the integration of objectives and programs in athletics with academic and developmental objectives, and to assure the integration of athletes with other students.
SU places special importance on the impact of athletics on the participants, with emphasis on the internal constituency (students, alumni, and special friends) rather than the general public and its entertainment needs.
The SU athletics program is further characterized by the following principals:
~~Participants receive the same treatment as other students. They have no unique privileges in admission, academic advising, course selection, grading, living accommodations, or financial aid. Similarly, athletes are not denied rights and opportunities that would be available to them as non-athletes.
~Sports for men and women are given equal emphasis and the desired quality of competition is similar in all sports.
~Students are supported in their efforts to reach high levels of performance by providing them with adequate facilities, competent coaching, and appropriate competitive opportunities with students from similar institutions.
~SU strives to make the student-athlete's participation in intercollegiate athletics an enriching experience, and holds genuine concern for each participant's welfare. The intercollegiate program's foremost goal at all times is to supplement and enrich the first priority of the University, which is academic accomplishment.
