The Auburn Tigers compete at the highest level of intercollegiate athletics as a charter member of the Southeastern Conference. Auburn fields 19 varsity teams with approximately 500 student-athletes supported by more than 225 full-time staff on the campus of Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
College sports fans would be hard-pressed to find a program more steeped in tradition than Auburn. Since the University first fielded a football team in 1892, the legends associated with the Tigers have passed down through generations of fans. The Auburn Family throughout Alabama, across the nation and around the world rallies to the battle cry "War Eagle!".
The Auburn Athletics Department will be the nation's preeminent Athletics Department. We have a two-fold purpose:
- To enable our student-athletes to be successful in all areas of their lives, athletics, academics and personal endeavors, both now and in their future careers, by providing them with the best resources available in academics, facilities and coaching;
- While meeting the needs of our student-athletes, to represent and promote Auburn University in a positive manner in all that we do.
The absolute values of the Auburn Athletics Department are to always tell the truth and to treat others as we would like to be treated.We will also adhere to the timeless values of the Auburn Creed. We will lead the way in integrity, diversity, communications, both internally and externally, compliance, and customer service.
We will function as a team, helping each other to be successful, rather than focusing on personal success. We will work for the benefit of others and for Auburn, not for personal gain. We will have an attitude of constructive discontent; always striving to be better.
The Athletics Department, in keeping with the mission of the University, and in a spirit of inclusion, encouraging diversity and equitable treatment for all, will seek to abide by the rules, to manage its fiscal affairs in a responsible manner, to educate its student-athletes, and to win championships, thereby bringing credit to Auburn and its people.
