Harry StinsonLincoln University Director of Athletics and Recreational Services Harry Stinson III continues to add to his NCAA resume as he was added to the NCAA Constitution Committee.

Stinson was one of five members added to the 28-member committee by the NCAA Board of Governors Thursday.

"I am excited and happy to serve on this committee to help shape the future of the NCAA," said Stinson. "This is very important work and I am looking forward to the future that we are able to mold and shape."

The committee is charged with identifying the core principles that define college sports. Members also must propose a new governance model that allows for quicker change without sacrificing broader values, which must be reaffirmed or redefined. The committee will be chaired by former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, one of five independent members of the Board of Governors and former president at Texas A&M.

"NCAA schools and conferences have been actively engaged as we prepare for the important work ahead for the Association," said Jack DeGioia, chair of the Board of Governors and president of Georgetown. "We have heard from a range of diverse perspectives from all facets of intercollegiate athletics and we are responding to the feedback we have received from our members. We are now prepared to move forward with our first meeting next week with the full committee in place."

He is currently serving on the NCAA Division II Management Council, the NCAA Division II Enforcement and Infractions Task Force, the NCAA Board of Governors Ad Hoc Committee on Sports Wagering, the NCAA Eligibility Center Advisory Committee, the Lincoln University Master Planning committee, the Lincoln University Strategic Planning Committee and the Lincoln University Compliance Committee.

Additionally, Stinson is the chairperson of the CIAA Management Council, vice-chairperson of the NCAA Minority Opportunities and Interest Committee (MOIC), member of the Athletic Advisory Board of Team Impact, and vice president of Black Sports Professionals Philadelphia.
