The Patriot League announced Monday the formation of the Patriot League Anti-Racism Commission, which "will examine areas in which systemic racism is perpetuated and seek actionable solutions for long-term sustainable change" within the league.

According to the league's website, participation of both current and former student-athletes, as well as coaches and administrators, will allow for a partnership across generations to assist in bridging the gap between their experiences, while enhancing the understanding of the student experiences on league campuses and communities. Full members include American University, Boston University, Bucknell, Colgate, the College of the Holy Cross, Lafayette College, Lehigh University, Loyola University Maryland, and the U.S. Military and Naval academies.

“The voices and experiences of our current and former student-athletes, coaches and administrators, as brought together by the League, are powerful,” Patriot League commissioner Jennifer Heppel stated on the league website. “The work of the Commission will intersect with existing and planned institutional initiatives and resources in order to maximize the value of the collective whole toward ensuring policies, operations and structure are absent of systemic racism.”
