The NCAA Student-Athlete Affairs program has been developed and implemented at George Mason University through the support of the University, the NCAA, and the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) in providing student-athletes an extraordinary environment that fosters principles of leadership, excellence, achievement, and diversity. The Student-Athlete Affairs program was developed to provide student-athletes with a support system that will assist them through the many transitions of college, help prepare them through the many transitions of college, help prepare them for the professional world, and at the same time provide opportunities to make meaningful contributions to the community.
