Watch: One year after NCAA D2 military partnership

In 2014, Georgia Regents University made history alongside the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II,  the Peach Belt Conference and Fort Gordon by becoming part of a unique joint-venture focused on strengthening the Augusta community. To date, the project – designed to inspire a sense of camaraderie and support between rising leaders in both the collegiate and military communities – has been a tremendous success.

Clint Bryant, GRU Augusta Director of Athletics, was chosen to chair the Division II Military Project Team shortly after the NCAA and local U.S. military leaders agreed to form the project in December 2013.

“[The project] becomes a part of the culture, it becomes a part of the community fabric,” said Bryant, describing the partnership. “And if we, as colleges and universities, can play a role in bringing that type of relationship together, that’s what we’re supposed to do. That’s our purpose.”
