Capital University (CU) is an institution that receives significant state support. Consequently, as resources become limited in a difficult economy, CU is facing greater scrutiny and accountability for its actions. CU’s athletics department, in particular, is feeling the pressure of the extra scrutiny as the media continues to highlight the mishaps and failings of the department. Issues surrounding athletics compliance and the department’s overall level of inclusiveness have been frequently front-page news and receive top billing on the nightly local newscasts in Forest Ridge. Dr. Cathy Clinton, Athletic Director of CU, is typically an autocratic leader and decision maker, however at this time, she feels that a more participatory approach to addressing these issues will be in the best interest of the department. As a result, Dr. Clinton has decided to develop a team of her athletics employees to address whether or not to hire another compliance administrator and how to respond to the department’s overall level of inclusiveness.
