Dr. Cheryl B. Schrader, chancellor of Missouri University of Science and Technology, has been selected to serve as a representative to the NCAA Division II Presidents Council, the organization’s highest governance office.
Schrader was selected to a four-year term on the council. Her term began Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, at the conclusion of the Division II business session at the NCAA Convention in Nashville.
The Presidents Council is Division II’s highest governance office. Its members are charged with setting the strategic direction for the division in all areas, including the division’s financial affairs and championships administration. The Presidents Council is also the primary sponsor of legislative proposals at the NCAA Convention, and the chair of the Council moderates the Division II Business Session at the annual Convention.
“I am extremely pleased that Chancellor Schrader has been appointed to the NCAA Division II Presidents Council,” says Mark Mullin, director of athletics at Missouri S&T. “This is a great honor, not only for her, but for our campus as well. She is committed to excellence in academics, athletics and service, and will be an outstanding addition to the Presidents Council.”
“I’m deeply honored for this appointment and look forward to helping all of NCAA Division II athletics to continuously improve for the benefit of our outstanding student-athletes,” Schrader says.
Schrader joined Missouri S&T as chancellor in April 2012. In her role on the Presidents Council, she will represent Region 3. The region includes the Great Lakes Valley Conference, of which Missouri S&T is a member.
Missouri S&T is home to 15 Division II sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, swimming, men’s and women’s track and field, and volleyball.
