Adams planning to attend NCAA summit this summer

INDIANAPOLIS – Leaders from about 50 Division I universities, including Georgia president Michael Adams, are scheduled to gather for a two-day retreat with NCAA president Mark Emmert this summer.

Emmert said Monday that he wants to conduct a discussion about the future of Division I sports. One topic being discussed is how to maintain amateurism in college sports. Those rules restrict how athletes are compensated by the schools for their work on the field.

Emmert says he wants more input from university presidents and chancellors about how the NCAA should move forward, too, though he doesn’t expect any changes to occur soon.

"It is on Dr. Adams’ calendar and he is committed to attending at the invitation of Emmert," UGA spokesman Tom Jackson said.

The meeting is scheduled to take place in August.

Other topics on the agenda include athlete academics and athletic department finances.
