  5. 5. Mission Statement The Thelma Evans College Department of Athletics strives, first and foremost, tocreate a program that encourages physical well being and fair athletic competition. Becausethe health and well being of our students is a top priority, we make it our mission to offerprograms that cater to the needs and wants of all students. All students should have theopportunity to participate in some type of athletic activity. Each season we look to furtherimprove the abilities of our athletes in order to continue the progress and success of ourprograms. Our goal is to develop our sports teams to the point where they can compete withother collegiate sports teams. The Department of Athletics also aims to supplement students’ education in anonacademic manor. We strongly believe that the personal and social skills learned throughour programs are just as significant as the athletic skills that are learned. Students not onlywill foster better athletic ability but also will learn selfdiscipline, respect, sportsmanship, leadership, perseverance, and the importance of team.Furthermore, the Department of Athletics aspires to create a sense of communitythroughout the campus and among students and faculty. Athletics gets students involved incampus activities, gives students a common ground to bond over, and provides athletes andnon athletes alike an opportunity to show school pride. Above all, the objective of thedepartments is to tie all groups of students together to create a dynamic environment.
