NCAA Report: Women Still Underrepresented

January 12, 2018

A new National Collegiate Athletic Association report reveals that women are still underrepresented in athletics programs.

About 25 percent of NCAA Division I institutions employ only one female administrator (an assistant or associate athletics director or an athletics director) -- or none at all. About 70 percent of Division II and III institutions also only have a single female administrator or none on staff.

The survey was completed by about 61 percent of these women.

About 20 percent of athletics directors are women, the survey indicates.
