Since its inception in 2013, the SSI has worked collaboratively with NCAA membership, with the Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sports, with medical and research experts, and with sports medicine and other medical organizations to develop interassociation consensus documents and educational resources to assist member institutions in their effort to provide for student-athlete health and safety. The interassociation documents and educational resources augment the nine strategic priorities of the SSI.
