I’m as surprised as you are to see you appointed IAAC Chair. Congrats.
As Senate President, I’d suggest that a good first step for the IAAC would be to restart the investigation of the allegations about the advising services provided by SSA that came up while Rob Illig was IAC Chair.

This was not on my radar, but at the request of President Schill, I agreed to take on this position. He can be very persuasive.
I am hopeful that we will be able to meet once this quarter and two or three times in the spring.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could email me with possible agenda items – what do you want to discuss with respect to the academic performance and welfare of student-athletes?
I look forward to working with all of you.

Dear IAAC members,
Thank you for your willingness to serve on the inaugural Intercollegiate Athletics Advisory Committee (IAAC). I am pleased to announce that Andy Karduna has agreed to serve as the inaugural chairperson for this committee and I want to thank him in advance for his leadership.
The University Senate approved the following committee charge on November 30, 2016:
The Committee is charged with advising the President on all policies and practices related to the academic performance and welfare of student-athletes. The Committee may at the President’s direction, engage broader issues regarding the relation of the athletics program to the overall mission of the university and NCAA or PAC12 policies. Additionally, the IAAC is charged with bringing issues related to the academics of student-athletes to the Senate with recommendation for action as needed.
The committee membership is made up of faculty, staff, students, and relevant administrators, which I list below as a way of initial introductions. I look forward to meeting you all at our first meeting and to working together in the future. My office will be in touch to schedule our first meeting during Winter Quarter.
Sincerely, Michael H. Schill President and Professor of Law
