Divison III Week: April 7-13, 2014
Division III Week was created as part of DIII’s Identity Initiative, which was introduced in 2010 to sharpen the division’s identity and to enable schools and conferences to consistently explain why they prefer to compete in Division III. The initiative has been guided by a strategic-positioning platform, describing Division III as a place where student-athletes can “follow your passions and develop your potential,” within an approach that combines rigorous academics, competitive sports and an opportunity to pursue other interests.
