EXHIBIT 7 4 / 6 / 2018 Case 4: 14 - mdcorerssion orgollege Basketbalcoarte17NCAAleel - ong otingSitepateNgAaf 4 Home Governance Commission on College Basketball Charter As of October 2017 1. Charge. The Commission on College Basketball has been established by the NCAA Board of Governors, Division I Board of Directors and NCAA President to fully examine critical aspects of Division I men's basketball. The Commission is strongly encouraged to identify bold legislative, policy and structural modifications to improve the integrity of our processes and the well - being of our student athletes. Further, the boards stand ready and are committed to implement appropriate meaningful and lasting changes. Specifically, the commission will focus on three areas: a. The relationship of the NCAA national office, member institutions, student - athletes and coaches with outside entities, including: i. Apparel companies and other commercial entities, to establish an environment where they can support programs in a transparent way but not become an inappropriate or distorting influence on the game, recruits or their families. ii. Nonscholastic basketball, with a focus on the appropriate involvement of college coaches and others. iii. Agents or advisors, with an emphasis on how students and their families can get legitimate advice without being taken advantage of, defrauded or risking their NCAA eligibility. b. The NCAA's relationship with the NBA and the challenging effect the NBA's so - called " one and done " rule has had on college basketball, including how the NCAA can change its own eligibility rules to address that dynamic. c. Creating the right relationship between the universities and colleges of the NCAA and its national office to promote transparency and accountability. The commission will be asked to evaluate whether the appropriate degree of authority is vested in the current enforcement and eligibility processes, and if the collaborative model provides the investigative tools, cultural incentives and structures to ensure exploitation and corruption cannot hide in college sports. 2. Composition. The Commission on College Basketball will be composed of the following members: Dr. Condoleezza Rice (chair) Former Provost, Stanford University 66thU.S. Secretary of State Mary Sue Coleman President Association of American Universities General Martin E.
