Champions of Character

Every year, each NAIA institution and conference demonstrates their progress in pursuing character-driven athletics. The Champions of Character Scorecard measures growth in training, promotion, conduct in competition and commitment in five key areas with a possibility of 100 points. Institutions can be recognized as Champions of Character Five-Star Institutions at three different levels: Gold (90-100 points), Silver (75-89 points) and Bronze (60-74 points).

This year 183 NAIA institutions earned the Five-Star Institution Award, up from 171 institutions last year. Included were 66 institutions at the gold distinction level, 76 at the silver distinction level and 41 at the bronze distinction level.

Fourteen NAIA Institutions tied with top honors with 100 points including the GSAC's very own Menlo College.

New to the Scorecard this year was the opportunity to offset an ejection for fighting, profanity or dissent with a teachable moment. Over 50 NAIA Institutions took advantage of the chance to earn back Scorecard points while giving the ejected individual a chance to learn from their mistake.

NAIA Conferences also showed improvement this year, with 18 receiving the Champions of Character Five-Star Conference Award. The Golden State Athletic Conference received Five-Star recognition for the sixth consecutive year.

Below is a listing of GSAC schools that received recognition:

Gold

Hope International University, Menlo College, San Diego Christian College, Vanguard University, Westmont College

Silver

William Jessup University
