Athletics Department

It is the goal of the Athletic Department to serve and direct student-athletes along a path that combines their educational pursuits along with athletic participation. It is imperative that athletics demonstrates integrity in all areas of its operation. The department is dedicated to overall financial stability, rules compliance and diversity as it reflects the image of the institution. The Athletic Department works closely with the Westcliff University campus community, alumni, friends of the University, and the greater surrounding community to achieve our mission. A healthy working relationship with the partners of NAIA is also part of the responsibility that Intercollegiate Athletics must effectively and continuously pursue.
