The University of Massachusetts Lowell, first and foremost, is dedicated to the promotion of learning and scholarship, and to meeting the public need for educated citizens. The University achieves that goal by completing its three-fold mission of teaching, research, and public service. UML also values the role played by athletics in the life of the community. Student-athletes are representatives of the University in intercollegiate competition, and their athletic and academic excellence brings credit to UML. The University recognizes that student-athletes must balance the demands of their sport with the academic obligations they assume when they enter an institution of higher learning. The following policy is designed to acknowledge that challenge, and to assist the student athletes, as well as faculty members, coaches, and administrators, in managing conflicts that could arise between the legitimate demands of both academics and athletics.
