The function of the Athletics Committee is to advise the dean of student affairs and the Department of Athletics on any issues involving the intersection of academics and athletics. It shall also report to the faculty annually on the vision, plans, and current state of the Department of Athletics.

The committee consists of eleven or more members, including at least five members of the faculty; the director of the Department of Athletics overseeing physical education, recreational and intercollegiate athletics; the dean of student affairs; a representative from the administration at large; and ex officio members of the athletic department staff (without vote). Full-time voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee. Members are appointed to a five-year term.

Committee members attend two meetings a year and then ad-hoc meetings when necessary. This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers.
