NCAA Reclassification Liaison Visit
Ms. Jill Willson, the NCAA’s liaison to Lincoln University
during the reclassification process, visited the campus October 8-9,
2007. She will be working closely with the
university over the next two years to provide assistance and guidance
the reclassification process. Ms.
Willson met with various administrators on Monday, October 8th
with President Nelson and the President’s Cabinet at their meeting on
Ms. Willson informed the Cabinet that Lincoln University
is in excellent position at this point in the process for
Division II. However, while we have made
significant progress in many areas, there are others that require a
of movement. It is very instrumental to
the success of the move that Lincoln
implements a written institutional control policy to ensure compliance
NCAA Division II regulations. The
university will also be required by 2011 to have the Compliance
Internet system in place to allow the ability to upload information on
athletes. While this is not required
until 2011, Ms. Willson strongly urged that this piece be put in place
as possible. Lincoln University
is in possession of the Compliance Assistance Internet system, which
operable once the Colleague system goes live.
Process on Employers
Changes to the Labor Recertification Process require
employer to pay the costs of preparing, filing, and obtaining the labor
certification to hire foreign nationals for employment in the US. Cabinet decided that these costs must be
borne by the area/department wishing to hire the individual. The Office of Human Resources will be asked
to draft a policy addressing this matter.
