Athletics Advisory Board

As outlined in the UPEI Strategic Plan 2013-18, the University of Prince Edward Island is committed to its academic mission, while at the same time recognizes the importance of the student experience inside and outside the classroom. This experience includes varsity athletics—whether from the perspective of a student competing in university sport, or of a student who cheers on the Panthers from the stands.

A successful varsity athletics program matters greatly to our campus and to the broader community we serve. We are extremely proud of our student athletes as they strive for excellence in sport, academics, and community.

In a clear demonstration of the University’s commitment to UPEI Athletics and Recreation, and how university sport contributes greatly to positive university-community connection, the President created and chairs the Athletics Advisory Board, which comprises community members, former student athletes, and alumni. The Advisory Board held its first meeting on September 15, 2014.
