“We are thrilled to partner with Teamworks to provide our student-athletes an innovative approach to their academic success,” said Ashley Rozendaal, American Director, Student Success and Student-Athlete Support. “Teamworks will provide our students a platform they can utilize as they balance their academic and athletic responsibilities, and more importantly as they travel and compete nationally.”
The Eagles join more than 2,000 NCAA Division I teams in partnership with Teamworks. By maximizing their resources through increased efficiency, AU will leverage the platform to power success in the classroom and the field of play.
