Abstract : The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) administers intercollegiate athletic programs on behalf of its membership. Four-year member schools are classified in one of three divisions, with division I being further subdivided into I-A, I-AA, and I-AAA, depending primarily on the size of a school's football program. Objectives, scope, and methodology: GAO was asked to examine the revenues and expenses of the NCAA and its member schools' athletic departments by using existing NCAA data. We surveyed the 298 division I schools to develop (1) profile data on the gender and race/ethnicity within schools' athletic departments, and (2) compensation data by gender and race/ethnicity for selected athletic positions. We analyzed the profile and compensation data by comparing such information for schools designated as historically black schools by the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, to similar information for the other division I schools.
