Closure Information & Resources for Athletics

The Urbana University Branch Campus announced closure on Tuesday, April 21, 2020, and will cease enrollments at the end of the 2020 Spring Semester. Campus officials have been working with officials at the NCAA and MEC organizations to obtain guidance on the most effective ways to transition those student athletes who wish to transfer to other institutions to continue their athletic endeavors.

How can alumni make requests for memorabilia items in athletics?
The transition team is currently conducting an inventory of potential memorabilia. Once the inventory has been completed, the team will meet to discuss a methodology and prioritization of distributing athletic memorabilia. Requests for athletic memorabilia can be sent to Larry Cox at larry.cox@urbana.edu

My school is interested in existing athletic equipment either for sale or donation. How do we make our request known?
The transition team is currently conducting an inventory of all existing athletic equipment. Once the inventory has been completed, the team will meet to discuss a strategy of how to disperse or distribute these assets. Requests can be forwarded to Larry Cox at larry.cox@urbana.edu

I am a current student-athlete at Urbana University. Can I keep my uniform and/or other athletic apparel?
Current student athletes who are in possession of uniforms/apparel that have the Urbana athletic logo may retain them permanently. Members of the coaching staff are already involved in communicating this to student-athletes. However, requests to obtain equipment need to be submitted to the Athletic Department by emailing Larry Cox at larry.cox@urbana.edu

I am interested in transferring, how do I get my name into the transfer portal?
The athletic department is committed to working with all current student-athletes who wish to continue playing by working to attempt to find a new destination for them. For all questions and requests related to NCAA transfer or compliance questions please contact Nikki Pluger at nikki.pluger@urbana.edu
