NCAA SYMBOL BOWS TO DEMOGRAPHICS OF ATHLETE POPULATION
Published July 6, 1995
The NCAA seal that features a caucasian male and female bowing as victory wreaths are being placed on their heads is quietly being phased out "in a gesture to minority athletes," according to this morning's MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL. The seal, the symbol of the NCAA since '49, changed after months of debate among NCAA officials who concluded that "even though there'd been no outcry among minority student-athletes, one day there would be." NCAA's Kathryn Reith: "Certainly there are more than caucasians among NCAA athletes" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/6).
