Athletics Mission Statement
Consistent with the University as a whole, the Athletics Department is committed
to the quest for excellence; to the personal formation of our undergraduate,
graduate, and professional students; and to the pursuit of a just society.
The University's dedication to excellence is an integral part of the Athletics
Department's goals and objectives and a primary consideration in our service to
students and the Boston College community.
In keeping with our tradition as a Catholic and Jesuit university, rooted in a
belief that seeks God in all things, especially in human activity, the Boston
College Athletics Department offers a broad-based program of intercollegiate
athletics, as well as intramural, recreation, and club sport opportunities. Through
these activities, the Athletics Department provides an educational experience
that promotes the development of the whole person intellectually, physically,
socially, and spiritually. Through its offerings, the Athletics Department plays an
integral part in the personal formation and development of students, preparing
them for citizenship, service, and leadership.
The University's pursuit of a just society is fostered through the Athletics
Department's commitment to the highest standards of integrity, ethics, and
honesty. The Athletics Department promotes the principles of sportsmanship,
fair play, and fiscal responsibility in compliance with University, Conference,
and NCAA policies.
The Athletics Department supports and promotes the University's goal of a
diverse student body, faculty and staff. In this spirit, the Athletics Department
supports equitable opportunities for all students and staff, including minorities
