Be on the frontline of athletic training in the college and university setting
The College/University Athletic Trianers' Committee (CUATC) is a district-based committee comprised of members from the collegiate setting, an athletic director and an NCAA delegate.
The CUATC serves several purposes with a focus to support, educate and represent the College/University Athletic Trainer. The CUATC supports the Athletic Trainer with resources and tools necessary to provide comprehensive healthcare to college and university student-athletes. The committee’s efforts are focused to help demonstrate the values and importance of the Athletic Trainer in the overall health and welfare of the student-athlete, to work with the appropriate third parties such as the NCAA, the NCAA Rules Committees, NAIA, CCCAA and NJCAA to promote issues of student-athlete safety and well-being, and to improve work-life balance for members within our setting. The CUATC also seeks to help foster an environment for the College/University Athletic Trainer to continue their educational journey and to grow the collective knowledge of Athletic Training. The CUATC serves to represent the College/University Athletic Trainer within the governance structure of the NATA, and acts to ensure members are kept informed by communicating regularly back to our members on our actions, and that on the NATA as a whole.
