Penn Athletics employs a unique structure where each intercollegiate sport utilizes a board that acts as an advocate and steward for its respective sport.  Penn sports boards focus on the areas of mentoring, development, alumni relations & events as well as strategic planning. The commitment from each of Penn's 18 sports boards plays a vital role in the success of the Department of Recreation and Intercollegiate Athletics.

  • There is one board per sport (for example, men’s and women’s basketball are provided oversight by a single board)
  • Sports boards are comprised of alumni, parents and friends of Penn Athletics
  • There are in-person meetings, phone calls and other touch points throughout the year that provide a forum for sports board members to stay engaged with Penn Athletics and offer guidance on key issues facing each sport
