  • Rowan Cross Country not prohibited from using facilities.

    There was an article published earlier today that misstated a longstanding university athletic facility use policy.

    As is common at many institutions, the policy dictates that teams use our athletic venues one team at a time. The article explained in error that the Cross Country team was no longer allowed to use the track at the Rowan stadium.

    The Cross Country team has a mixed practice schedule where it may do road work one day, followed by trail work on another and then track work on yet another day.

    During the fall, in football season, the Cross Country team’s designated practice time to use the sports stadium is after the football team uses the facility.

    Preferring not to schedule practice later in the day, the Cross Country coach has historically made alternate plans for the team to use Glassboro High School’s track, which is directly across the street from Rowan’s stadium.

    There was a recent situation where the Cross Country team found the Glassboro High School facility was unexpectedly locked, so the team went into Rowan’s stadium to practice while the football team was still there.

    The situation was addressed at an Athletics Department meeting on a subsequent day, however, by the time the clarification of the one-team-at-a-time policy was reiterated to students, it was interpreted as though the Cross Country team was being prohibited from future use of the facility. That is not the case. Each of Rowan’s athletic teams have designated schedules and ensured dedicate time.

    With that said, there are times when athletes and teams may informally overlap in their use of a particular facility, however, the policy is one team at a time at each athletic venue.

    Please feel free to contact officeofthepresident@rowan.edu regarding Rowan’s Athletics facility use policy.

  • SPORTS BRA ARTICLE RAISES QUESTIONS

    A recently published article raised questions about the possibility of Rowan’s women athletes being restricted from wearing sports bras without shirts during training. The piece raises questions about the possibility of an inequitable protocol for women’s athletic apparel. I ensure you that the University and our Athletics program are committed to providing the most accommodating and fair environment for all of our athletes.
    Rowan’s Athletic Department has had a longstanding verbal protocol that all athletes must wear shirts, even during practices. The verbal policy was adopted as a matter of keeping a level of standards throughout its men's and women's programs.

    What led to the article and brought light to the verbal policy was a recent explanation of it to new staff, who then relayed the information to students. Having practiced all season in “sports bra” tops, many interpreted this as a new policy.

    Not knowing the verbal policy existed and just becoming aware of it, Rowan’s administration has met with the Athletics Department and promises immediately to develop a written policy that allows women athletes to wear sports-bra tops without shirts during practices. Rowan Athletics will continue to follow NCAA guidelines for uniforms during competition. In the new formal policy, there will be no restriction of sports bras without shirts as practice apparel.

    The University recognizes that while the verbal policy attempted to set standards, it could be misunderstood and does not accommodate today’s training practices across sports. We recognize this may stir debate within the University community and beyond. By clarifying our support of women’s athletics and its student-athletes, Rowan strongly affirms its commitment to ensuring that women are able to train and perform at the highest levels.
    Please feel free to contact us with further thoughts or questions at officeofthepresident@rowan.edu.

    Thank you,
    Ali A. Houshmand
    President, Rowan University

  • Message from President Houshmand:

    Today our Rowan community met to discuss Monday’s incident in which Glassboro police pulled over two of our students on our main campus. The stop distressed the two students and triggered great concern and an impassioned response from the Rowan community and more, including numerous emails from parents, alumni and others.

    More than 300 Rowan University students, administrators, faculty, staff, alumni and friends attended the forum in the Student Center, which was a follow-up to the email we sent on Wednesday regarding the incident.

    We held the forum to address the specific incident and broader issues of student relationships with law enforcement, especially for students of color. I hope you agree the forum was a good first step.

    Thank you to everyone for your insights and feedback, your questions and suggestions. As those of you who attended know, I pledged my commitment to hear and respond to your concerns, many of which reflected great pain and ongoing fears. I especially appreciate the commitment of the SGA; Division of Student Affairs; and Office of Social Justice, Inclusion and Conflict Resolution to foster conversations, define challenges and encourage change and improvement.

    I look forward to all of the Rowan family and our borough neighbors working together to enable everyone to study, work and live in a more safe, secure and inclusive environment. To that end, our next steps include continuing to meet with the borough, the students involved, SGA and Student Affairs to formulate a plan in order to learn and grow from this experience. We look forward to meeting with many groups and expect to invest much time in collectively finding solutions to the concerns voiced today.

    We will update the Rowan community about future forums and advances coming from these gatherings. Meanwhile, should you have other suggestions you would like to share, please officeofthepresident@rowan.edu. We want to hear from you. We need your input.

    Yours truly,

    Ali A. Houshmand

  • As many of you no doubt have heard from friends or seen on social media or television, Glassboro police on Monday pulled over two Rowan University students on our Glassboro campus.

    The police determined on location that the students were not involved in the incident that resulted in the vehicle stop.

    While Glassboro is still investigating the circumstances that led to officers stopping our students, the manner in which they made the stop has troubled some of the University community.

    We recognize that this event has shaken many members of our Rowan family, including those who witnessed the stop. Since Monday, University officials have been working with the students involved in the incident, including offering services to those impacted by the stop.

    The incident also has sparked a broader conversation about race relations, specifically in the area of law enforcement. Our administration, including our Public Safety leadership, welcomes this dialogue as we continue to work to ensure all of our students, employees and guests not only are safe but also receive equitable treatment. Rowan’s leadership has been working with the Student Government Association to address not only what happened on our campus but also facilitate a dialogue about the ongoing national conversation concerning race and law enforcement.

    Please join us on Friday, Oct. 5, at 11 a.m. in the Student Center ballroom to discuss this critical topic during an open forum co-sponsored by Rowan SGA and the Office of Social Justice and Inclusion.

    If you have questions or would like to share your concerns, please email officeofthepresident@rowan.edu or call 856-256-4100.
