Preserve SCAD Athletics

This petition had 1,166 supporters

We, the undersigned, believe strongly in the value that athletic teams add to the overall college experience and community at large, and request that SCAD bring back softball, baseball and volleyball, reevaluate the decision to disband basketball, cheerleading and crew, and investigate the mishandling of information related to these most recent cuts.

We stand together in support of SCAD Athletics. We support all the players (past and present) and their families, the coaches, staff and trainers, and the entire student body of SCAD and its alumni.

SCAD Athletics has contributed in many positive ways, including a large number of community service projects. The list below represents just a handful of the numerous organizations and events that SCAD student-artist-athletes were involved with.


- Bethesda Home for Boys

- The Buddy Walk

- Ronald McDonald House Charities
