Athletics Mission Statement

     The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown's Intercollegiate Athletics Program is an integral part of the institution's total educational mission.  Twelve men's and women's sports are offered, providing diverse opportunities to accommodate students' needs and varying interests (women's volleyball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling, women’s indoor and outdoor track and field, and baseball). The college is a Division II member of the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), as well as a member of the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (WVIAC). Athletics-related aid is available to a limited number of participants who qualify.

The philosophy of Pitt-Johnstown Athletics embraces the concepts of the "student-athlete” being a "student" first, as well as the principles of ethnic diversity, gender equity and requirements of Title IX, and nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation. The physical and mental welfare of the student-athlete is of the highest importance. Fair play and sportsmanship are emphasized along with strict compliance with the rules and regulations of the NCAA.
