College of Saint Mary (CSM) has approved the construction of its new state-of-the-art $18 million athletic facility, which will provide its students and the greater Omaha area with a place for women to excel and grow through athletics. Attached to the Lied Fitness Center, CSM’s Wellness & Athletic Center (WAC) will dramatically expand access to year-round training, recreation and performance spaces for students, athletes, and the surrounding community.
In college athletics, Division I teams garner much of the attention, money and scandal associated with the NCAA. That leads to a spillover into the governance of smaller programs in Divisions II and III. That's according to Mount Holyoke College President Lynn Pasquerella, who was recently appointed to the NCAA Division III board. Pasquerella, who is a medical ethicist, says a solution to a Division I problem does not always make sense for schools like Mount Holyoke.
