Promoting Student-Athlete Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention


We are pleased to announce that for the fourth time since 2015, Division II and the University of Virginia’s Gordie Center will partner to host a Division II-specific APPLE Training Institute.

Athletics administrators and student-athletes from 40 institutions committed to promoting student-athlete wellness and substance abuse prevention on their campuses will have an opportunity to participate. The NCAA Division II APPLE Training Institute will be held Sept. 17-19, 2021, in Orlando, Florida. 

Conferences may nominate up to two active member institutions through a Attendee Nomination Form sent to conferences. Please note that if you had submitted nominations for the 2020 Division II APPLE Training Institute (which was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic), those nominations will be carried forward to the 2021 Division II APPLE Training Institute. Space at the Division II APPLE Training Institute is limited to an additional 20 institutions. Nominations should be emailed to Lisa Rogers,, by Thursday, April 1. Institutions will be notified of their selection by Thursday, April 15. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Ms. Rogers.
