Recently, at its annual general convention in Orlando, the NCAA's executive

committee approved a 10-year pilot program to accept select international

schools within its ranks. "It is possible," NCAA spokesperson Stacey Osburn said Tuesday, "that

international membership legislation will be on the floor this time next year."

 

 

 

The University of British Columbia has been the most aggressive

with its inquiries and could possibly submit a formal application quite

soon.

 

 

 

Intercollegiate athletics is about providing opportunities for students

and I think that this decision by the Executive Committee is moving in a positive direction.
