Conversations about the newly implemented alcohol and drug sanctions for student athletes are ongoing, according to President Alison Byerly. Revisions to the policy are expected to be announced this week.
“I feel that the alcohol conversation is proceeding in a positive way,” Byerly said. If we can get feedback that suggests there are revisions that would achieve [a safe and healthy climate for student athletes], then we are very open to it.”
Senior Athlete Representatives Tim Shaw, Lindsay Yang and Brendan Gover met with Director of Athletics Bruce McCutcheon and Senior Associate Director of Athletics Kaitlyn McKittrick on Friday, September 13. It was agreed upon that no details from the discussion would be released until revisions were announced.
“[Bruce] reported that he had a very good conversation with them,” Byerly said.
