The chair of FCSA serves on the Advisory Committee on Intercollegiate Athletics (ACIA) which advises the president of the University of Washington on all matters pertaining to:

  • Institutional control of athletic programs.
  • Academic and financial integrity of intercollegiate athletics.
  • Academic and personal well-being of student-athletes.
  • Accountability of the athletic department to the values and mission of the University of Washington.

In the event that ACIA activities require action by the Faculty Senate the committee will coordinate with senate leadership to determine next steps.
