The Committee on Collegiate Sports at UNC was created by Faculty Council in 2015 and began meeting in 2016 to organize several campus events related to varsity athletics topics nationally and their impact on athletics at the University. The first event was held on September 14, 2016, “How Can We Better Help Student-Athletes who Seek More Time for Academics and Student Life.”
