Ethics and sportsmanship: They matter at CSU

August 26, 2014

Open letter asks all students to convey message of ethics and sportsmanship at Ram events.

Dear CSU Students,

The Mountain West (MW) Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) believes the most important aspects of sport are ethics and sportsmanship.  As members of the CSU SAAC, we are pleased the MW continues its initiative to enhance this philosophy.

We are asking for your assistance, once again, in making this effort an on-going success.  We understand that, in order for CSU to convey a message of ethics and sportsmanship, it must have the support of everyone involved with athletics on our campus including you – the students.  It is our behavior that will shape the perception of our institutions and teams by the public, the media and our opponents.  

Strong ethics and positive sportsmanship must be displayed both on and off the playing field.  All of us must take a leadership role to compete at the highest levels, always endeavoring to win but doing so with grace, class, dignity and respect.

Please join us in supporting the MW Sportsmanship Initiative and establishing Colorado State University as a strong representative of positive fan behavior.

Thank you for your commitment and support and GO RAMS!
