Mission

What is the Bronco Athletic Fund?

The Bronco Athletic Fund provides resources for student-athletes to receive a lasting educational and athletic experience while contributing to the financial sustainability of the Athletic Department. The WMU Division of Intercollegiate Athletics’ mission is to produce NCAA Division IA programs characterized by excellence in Athletics and Academics, while being recognized as a leader among ethical, nondiscriminatory, and fiscally well-managed departments. Athletic programming excellence is determined by academic achievement, strong character development, maturity, and a sense of fair play while being competitive. This promotes support among students, faculty, alumni, and friends at the local, state, and national levels.
