Dr. Miles named to NJCAA Advisory Council

Aug.15, 2016

Dr. Belinda S. Miles, president of Westchester Community College, has been named to the newly created National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Presidential Advisory Council. She is one of two representatives of the Northeast District. The new Council members will evaluate issues relating to athletics and back the organization’s mission to foster a national program of athletic participation in an environment that supports equitable opportunities consistent with the educational objectives of the 500+ member colleges.

“I am proud to represent the college on this Council,” says Dr. Miles, noting that the formation of the group was part of legislation that was passed by the association’s Board of Directors during its recent annual meetings. The Council will be comprised of twelve presidents with two members from each of the six regional districts. The members will be eligible for reelection following a three-year term.

Since 1938, the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) has served as the governing of two-year college athletics, offering athletic and academic opportunities to college students. The NJCAA is the second-largest national intercollegiate athletic association in the United States with member schools in 43 states. Each year, nearly 60,000 student-athletes compete in one of the 28 different sports and the organization sponsors 48 national championship events and eight football bowl games. NJCAA Headquarters has been located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, since 1985. For more information visit njcaa.org.

Westchester Community College has reinstated its Project Transition Program for Westchester/Putnam residents who are divorced, widowed, separated, or have a permanently disabled or unemployed spouse. The program, which was offered at the institution from 1987 to 2013, has received funding to continue in 2016 and 2017.
