USAFA hosts NACDA symposium: Collegiate athletic directors discuss stance against sexual assault


Athletic directors from several U.S. colleges met here April 10-11 to discuss a shared priority: reducing sexual assault and learning innovative ways to teach leadership and develop character among their athletes.

The group included about 100 athletic directors from the Air Force Academy, and the Power Five conferences, including the PAC-12, ACC and Big 12, and Ivy League and District 2 and 3 National Collegiate Athletic Association schools.

They attended forums in Polaris Hall and discussed their stance against sexual assault at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletes Spring Symposium, hosted by the Academy’s Athletic Department.

Kimberly Dickman, the Academy’s Sexual Assault and Prevention and Response analyst, was the keynote speaker.
