The committee has the responsibility for reviewing policies and monitoring the athletic program of the university. The athletic director may bring various issues to the committee relative to the athletic program to ask for its assistance in a number of areas. Among the areas for which the athletic committee has traditionally provided guidance are the establishment of ticket prices for athletic events, and the monitoring of university and athletic department activities relative to NCAA standards. At such times as coaches or administrators in the athletic program are replaced, individual members of the athletic committee will be asked to serve on screening committees.

Other members of the committee will be asked to participate in the interview process and to make recommendations directly to the athletic director or the president relative to an appointment. Matters of concern relative to the athletic program should be identified by committee members and brought to the attention of the athletic director and the chair of the committee.
