Rockford, Ill., – Rockford University Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) Michael Perry, Ph.D., has been selected as a 2016 NCAA Division III FAR Fellow. Along with his duties as FAR, Dr. Perry is an associate professor of English and serves as Dean of the College of Arts and Humanities.

The FAR Fellows Institute was launched in 2010 and aims to increase the effectiveness of Division III FARs at the campus, conference and national levels.

Institute attendees will participate in a three-day professional development program at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis October 14 – 16. The components of the program provide a thorough examination of best practices and issues surrounding the role and responsibility of the FAR, help FAR Fellows develop the leadership skills necessary to carry out their responsibilities on campus and in their conference, and strengthen the network of FARs needed to serve on conference, divisional and association-wide committees.
