Mary Washington President Dr. Troy Paino Appointed to NCAA Division III Presidents Advisory Group

University of Mary Washington president Troy Paino has been appointed to the NCAA Division III Chancellors/Presidents Advisory Group.

Paino is among 23 presidents and chancellors from across the U.S. who will advise the Division III Presidents Council, the highest governing body in the division.

"I am honored to have this opportunity to be a part of a national conversation that promotes the value of the student-athlete experience", said Paino on Friday. "This is especially true at Mary Washington where we truly believe that our student athletes, through their service, hard work, commitment, and pursuit of excellence both in competition and academics, are engaged in an important high impact learning experience."

The Council establishes and directs the general policy of the Division, while also establishing Division III's strategic plan. It can make recommendations to the Board of Governors on matters related to Division III, such as championships, and may approve how the Division spends its money.

Paino's term runs through the close of the January 2021 NCAA Convention.
