COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - In response to the recent decision by the NCAA Division II Membership Committee not to recommend Westminster College at this time for entry into the membership process, Commissioner Chris Graham has issued the following statement on behalf of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference:

"Our commitment to our 16th member, Westminster College, remains unchanged. The conference is highly supportive of Westminster as they engage in the next steps towards NCAA Division II membership. Westminster will add significant value to the division and the conference once they are accepted."

The NCAA membership process provides ongoing opportunity for review and application. Once institutions are recommended, they are submitted for approval to the Management Council and must complete a three-year provisional process.

Westminster, a Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference member throughout most of the 1970s, is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Griffins currently compete in the Frontier Conference and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference is a premier NCAA Division II conference located in the states of Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, and South Dakota. The RMAC currently competes in 22 NCAA Division II sports and has earned 52 NCAA Division II national championships and 42 national runner-ups since 1992. Founded in 1909, the RMAC is the most historic athletic conference headquartered in the western United States and also in Division II.
