"I am very pleased with the results of the first meeting," said Keller Tuesday. "The members of the Athletic Review Task Force have a challenging time ahead of them. However, based upon yesterday's meeting, I feel confident that everyone involved is up to the task."
The formation of six subcommittees to focus upon issues that face USD athletics regarding affiliation and membership was announced at the meeting. The subcommittees, each chaired by a member of the task force, are: fiscal/personnel; classifi- cation policy; facilities; affiliation; constituencies; and support units.
In addition to the formation of the subcommittees, the Athletic Review Task Force set Thursday, Oct. 5, as the date of its next full meeting. The full committee will also meet Monday, Nov. 6, as a target to complete the review.
The subcommittees will meet at various times over the next several weeks, with the six subcommittee heads tentatively scheduled for at least bi-weekly meetings.
