Sustainability Committee / Rowing Growth Initiative

The role of the Sustainability Committee is to address the immediate needs of rowing programs that have been or are on the verge of being cut. Originally started as the ‘Program Preservation Committee’ the Sustainability Committee has shifted its focus and attention on the advancement and growth of rowing programs at the collegiate level while still maintaining tools and resources for “at-risk” programs.

The Sustainability Committee is made up of the following members:

CRCA Board Contact: Lori Dauphiny – Princeton University

Committee Chair: John Gartin – Northern Arizona University

Bebe Bryans – University of Wisconsin-Madison

Justin Price- Rutgers University

Dave Ringham – Boston College

Samantha Sarff – University of Louisville
