Spring 2011 Issue
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced recently that Idaho State University's athletic department has been fully certified.

ISU Receives New Court and Field
During the summer of 2010 the University received NCAA certification with one condition. The NCAA determined the institution "did not fully implement its Cycle-2 gender-equity plan in the program area of accommodation of interests and abilities."
To meet the NCAA requirement, ISU has constructed a new women's softball complex and increased funding for the program, completed new intercollegiate locker rooms for women's volleyball, softball and basketball as well as increasing the number of women's athletic scholarships.
