Mission Statement

Blackburn College Athletics Philosophy Statement:

Blackburn College Athletics places highest priority on the overall quality of the student-athlete experience in academic, work and athletic endeavors.  The College seeks to establish and maintain an environment in which a student-athlete's co-curricular activities enhance the student's educational experiences.  Blackburn College Athletics fosters the opportunity for individual character and leader development, respect for individuals and promotes lifelong learning.  Blackburn also seeks to establish an atmosphere where cultural diversity and gender equity are valued among our student-athletes and athletics staff.  In addition the Blackburn Athletics Department seeks to work cooperatively with all other areas of the campus community to establish open lines of communication and strong working relationships for the benefit of the student-athlete.
