The NCAA will recognize and award participation in the Game Environment initiative at three levels.
This level recognizes a school’s effort in a banner proclaiming “We Chose a Positive Game Environment.” Each institution will receive this Division II Game Environment banner for display after the President/Chancellor and Director of Athletics acknowledge that they have considered and discussed the self-assessment tool.
As with the annual NCAA Community Engagement conference award, the NCAA will recognize a conference Game Environment initiative award winner each year. Evaluation to determine the winner will be based on conference submissions to the “Ideas That Work” page of the DII Game Environment website. Please read the conference award criteria.
Division II Game Environment conference award winners (and one independent) will be eligible to receive the “National Game Environment Award of Excellence.” This award will be presented annually at the NCAA Convention.
