Mission Statement

The mission of the intercollegiate athletic program at Shaw University is to provide athletic programs to a diverse population of student-athletes and strives to achieve the same standards of excellence in its athletics program as exists within its academic programs.

Furthermore, the intercollegiate athletics program embraces the concept that the student-athlete is first and foremost a student--possessing individual rights, academic abilities, personal interests and ambitions comparable to those of other members of the general student body while pursuing an undergraduate degree.

The intercollegiate athletics program seeks to enhance character development through competition, sportsmanship, leadership and community service.
