CMU earns NAIA Champions of Character Five-Star Institution Award
Central Methodist University has earned the 2011-2012 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics' Champions of Character Five-Star Institution Award. The Eagles scored an 87 out of 100 on the Champions of Character Scorecard.
"I am very proud of our student-athletes, coaches, and fans," Central Methodist Vice President for Institutional Growth and Student Engagement Ken Oliver said. "We would not receive these types of awards if our community did not live and follow the core values of what it takes to be a true Champion of Character institution."
The mission of the NAIA Champions of Character Program is to provide training to ensure character is demonstrated through conduct as well as competition, so students know, do and value the right thing in all areas of life.
The Champions of Character Scorecard measures each institution's commitment to the NAIA Champions of Character program. Points are earned in five key areas: character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion.
Headlining the distinction for Central Methodist's 2011-12 campaign was its baseball team, which was honored by the NAIA in June with the Buffalo Funds Five Star Champions of Character Team Award.
