Academic Programs and Support Services Review
Your academic support and advising programs are an integral part to both the academic and athletic success of your teams. Forward Progress has vast experience with assisting institutions in analyzing their current academic support programs and providing recommendations on policy, structure and best practices to ensure that your student-athletes are receiving the best possible academic assistance.
Certification of Continuing Eligibility/PTD
A frequent outcome of the APR data review process is that an institution will be required to recertify the eligibility of some, if not all, of its student-athletes from a certain time period. This can be a huge, time-consuming project for an athletic department that is already thinly-stretched. Forward Progress can assist by undertaking the re-certifications, and working with your department to create sustainable eligibility certification processes going forward.
Why wait for a crisis to threaten your good reputation and the success of your sport programs? Forward Progress has teamed up with the attorneys at Bond, Schoeneck and King to offer Academic Integrity Reviews that offer a thorough, candid perspective on any potential vulnerabilities in your academic program. We identify vulnerabilities and work with you to minimize your exposure and safeguard your reputation – before any damage occurs. Forward Progress & Bond will help you secure your reputation and ensure the continued success of your athletic programs.
Current NCAA Student-Athletes
Forward Progress can also work to support the needs of NCAA student-athletes directly. Either with NCAA institutions or with the student-athlete families, we provide expert guidance in all NCAA related policies and procedures.
At times, an athletic department will find itself at a crossroads, needing an outside group to assess its status in a fashion. Forward Progress can provide your athletic department with just such a wide-ranging review, focusing on everything from development and finances to compliance and academics. With over 40 years of collegiate athletics experience, we bring a vast amount of experience to each review.
Forward Progress offers in-person workshops that focus on trends and hot topics with the NCAA membership and governance structure. We will customize the educational outcomes to focus on your departmental needs and availability.
