Tony Weaver, an assistant professor in Leisure and Sport Management, presented a paper at the North American Society for Sport History on May 26 in Lake Placid, N.Y. 

In the paper, "The Influence of Historical Factors on Intercollegiate Athletic Department Reclassification," Weaver discusses how two institutions that reclassified to Division I were influenced by the desire to improve the institutional profile, the athletic programs' past accomplishments, and the athletic success of peer institutions in justifying the move to Division I.
