The President’s Athletics Oversight Council (PAOC) is charged with strategic oversight of all academic matters related to intercollegiate athletics and all policies that impact student-athlete academic success and welfare.
The Council oversees the following:
- the academic integrity of KSU’s intercollegiate athletics programs and its student-athletes;
- academic-related NCAA and conference rule compliance; and
- student-athlete welfare, particularly concerning academic success and career
The Council ensures that KSU policies related, but not limited to, special admissions, game scheduling, and academic support are consistent with the academic mission of the University; maintains academic integrity and rules compliance; and promotes student-athlete academic success.
The Council serves in conjunction with the university president to assure that the institutional control expected by the NCAA and the Board of Regents is in place. The Council is tasked with providing advice and counsel to the president and the athletics director to ensure academic integrity, academic rules compliance, and student-athlete welfare as members of the Kennesaw State Community.
