Accorsi Named Rep to NCAA at Springfield College

SPRINGFIELD — Springfield College has named Robert Accorsi G’80 as its faculty athletic representative to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Appointed by Springfield College President Mary-Beth Cooper, Accorsi is currently an associate professor of Sport Management and Recreation at the College. He succeeds Immediate Past Dean, HPER, and Associate Professor of Exercise Science and Sports Studies, Charles J. Redmond, who retired following this past academic year.

As faculty athletic representative, Accorsi will represent the College to the NCAA, the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC), the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) and all other athletic conferences and associations. Accorsi will oversee that academic integrity, institutional control of intercollegiate athletics, and enhancement of student-athletes’ experience are college priorities.

Accorsi will also advise the college president, director of athletics, faculty, students and other constituencies on intercollegiate athletics. Additionally, he will monitor student-athletes’ eligibility, academic progress and graduation rates, and support their nominations for various awards. Student-athletes may discuss any aspect of their student-athlete experience with him and he will consult with the NCAA legislative services for interpretations.

“I am delighted that Bob has agreed to serve in this critical position for the college. His deep understanding of sport and the needs of our student athletes make him a perfect fit for assuming this leadership role,” said Cooper of the appointment. “I look forward to working with him in this capacity. He is more than qualified to represent and advise Springfield College on intercollegiate athletics.”
