The Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics (COIA) is an organization representing the elected faculty governance bodies of National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I  universities in activities related to the administration and governance of intercollegiate athletics. COIA’s mission is to promote the academic integrity of member universities, and to represent the interests of faculties, student-athletes and non-athlete students in matters related to college sports that can significantly affect the health, sustainability and educational missions of our institutions. COIA aims to accomplish its mission by assisting the governance of intercollegiate athletics on our campuses through data collection, information sharing and the development of best practices; partnering with peer-faculty and other organizations on our common interests; and also by providing a constructive, responsible and informed representative faculty voice at each of our respective institutions, within the various athletics conferences and at the national (NCAA) level.
