WSSU To Remain Division 2

Category: Featured News, MEAC Expansion & Realignment, NCAA Division Upgrades

Winston-Salem State University has stopped its drive to DI and will rejoin the CIAA.

Chancellor Donald Reaves, who has researched the move to Division I over the last 18 months, presented a detailed resolution that the board unanimously approved.
“This has been a difficult decision,” Reaves told the board. “…but it’s time to move on.”
Since leaving the CIAA and starting the transition to Division I five years ago, WSSU’s athletics department has lost more than $6 million. Reaves projected that the deficit would grow to $15 million by 2012.
