Gold member

Kansas City, Mo. – The NAIA has released the list of the 157 member institutions that were named Champions of Character Five-Star Award winners for the 2021-22 season. Columbia College was once again named as a Gold Five-Star Champions of Character award winner.

Each year, NAIA schools use the Champions of Character scorecard to measure the pursuit of character-driven athletics. Schools scoring a minimum of 60 out of 100 earn the Champions of Character Five-Star Institution Award.

Institutions are measured on a demonstrated commitment to Champions of Character and earn points in character training, conduct in competition, academic focus, character recognition and character promotion. Institutions earn points based on exceptional student-athlete grade point averages and by having minimal to no ejections during competition throughout the course of the academic year.
