Presidents and chancellors from 16 universities including East Carolina University met in Dallas on Sunday (Feb. 12) to discuss future conference membership plans and agreed to work on forming a new intercollegiate athletics association that would begin competition in the 2013-14 academic year. This presidentially-led association will ensure stability and be built upon the principles of operating at the highest level of integrity and sportsmanship, enhancing the student-athlete academic and competitive experience, bringing fiscal discipline into athletics, and ensuring competitive fairness. “We are very encouraged by the teamwork and energy exhibited among all the presidents and chancellors involved in our recent discussions,” said ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard.  “I’m in strong support of the commitment of the new conference to the academic success of the student athlete.” In addition to East Carolina, universities involved in the discussions were the U.S. Air Force Academy, University of Alabama–Birmingham, Colorado State University, Fresno State, Tulane, University of Hawaii, Marshall University, University of Nevada–Reno, University of New Mexico, University of Nevada–Las Vegas, Rice University, University of Southern Mississippi, University of Texas–El Paso, University of Tulsa and University of Wyoming. With the exception of Hawaii as a football-only member, the participation would involve all sports. “The statement from the Chancellors’/Presidents’ (CEO’s) meeting is encouraging and indicative that the merger is moving forward as expected,” said ECU Athletic Director Terry Holland.  “That is good news for all involved and we are looking forward to the continuing discussions.”
