President Miller's Response to CIAA
Published date: November 17, 2013
Today, the CIAA declared VSU ineligible for further football postseason participation. We abide by the decision and agree that the conduct of our player(s) was inexcusable and indefensible. Student-athletes, coaches, administrators and alumni must all understand that such behavior has no place in intercollegiate athletics, or university life in general. We expect the representatives of our school to comport themselves with dignity, with pride and with respect for themselves, their teammates and their opponents.
We will continue to investigate this incident and will respond quickly and decisively. We will use this incident to galvanize support from our students, alumni and entire campus to convey a message of respect and civility that serve as the cornerstones of Virginia State University.
Finally, we offer our full support to Winston Salem State University as they advance in the NCAA Division II postseason.
