6 The IPP Data Management System Purpose, Key Points and Launch
7 The IPP Data Management System - Purpose To provide institutional leaders with vital and significant data to assist with planning, performance and oversight of their intercollegiate athletics program.Primary audience is the chancellor/president and other institutional leaders.Committee recognizes others will use the data management system.Broad-based review of the data is encouraged.

13 Possible Future Initiatives Student-Athlete Experience, Rules Compliance, Academic Support and Inclusion
14 Student-Athlete Experience Two potential components for future inclusion into IPP:Health and safety survey.Student-athlete experience survey.
15 Student-Athlete Experience Health and Safety Survey:Almost half of all Division I athletic trainers completed pilot survey.Data collected in this survey cannot be found elsewhere in the medical community.Has the potential to be extremely helpful to health care practitioners and institutional leaders.
16 Student-Athlete Experience Student-Athlete Experience Survey:Over 30 institutions agreed to participate in the voluntary student-athlete experience survey.Over 3,000 Division I student-athletes completed the pilot survey.NCAA research staff is compiling results.
17 Rules Compliance Evaluation The Committee on Institutional Performance discussed the possibility of including a once-in-four-years rules compliance review as a best practice within IPP.Committee is engaged with the National Association for Athletics Compliance and the Collegiate Commissioners Association Compliance Administrators groups to develop this best practice.Will be provided to membership after the committee’s July 2015 meeting.
18 Academic Support Services Evaluation Academics Subcommittee recommended receiving feedback from the following groups regarding whether an academic support services review should be a required element of IPP:Committee on Academics;NCAA Division I Council;FARA; andNational Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics.
19 Inclusion ReviewReview of data included within the Students and Leadership categories should not serve as a Title IX review for Division I institutions.Data should be used to provide insight into gender equity, recognizing that additional questions and information is needed.Once-in-four-years inclusion review as best practice.
20 Call to Action Inform campus leaders IPP will launch June 1st. Organize broad-based group to review data.Identify point person on campus.Manage SSO administrator accounts on campus.
