The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics is nationally recognized for the academic and athletic excellence of its student-athletes and their collective commitment to fair play and sportsmanship embodied in the University's Franciscan heritage.

Siena Mission Statement ... -html.aspx

The Athletic Department will provide a dynamic and progressive environment in which members of the Siena community can take part in competitive and or recreational opportunities while providing its student athletes with a positive environment in which to learn, live, compete and practice.
Core Values
1. Community
The athletic department will provide opportunities in which student athletes can share in the Franciscan values of Siena through its Saints in the Community program. The department recognizes the unique place Siena athletics holds in the Capital Region and that it has a responsibility to share its major varsity sports teams with the community.
2. Equity
Athletics will prioritize the competitive opportunities it offers the student athletes in a fair manner. The department will provide recreational and intramural opportunities to all members of the community who desire to participate.
3. Integrity
The athletic department will win the right way. Success achieved by taking short cuts or operating outside prescribed requirements-NCAA, Conference, College policy--is a hollow success. As a staff our actions and attitude will serve as examples to our students and teach them that any success worth having should be done the right way.
4. Student Centered
The department's services and efforts will be centered on the student athletes and will assist them in developing to their full academic, athletic and social potential. Student athletes will be given the opportunity to develop skills such as leadership, teamwork, decision-making and organization. We will educate student athletes to the importance of respect, responsibility, accountability and compassion. Our recreational programs will provide the student community a means whereby their social development will continue beyond the classroom experiences.

About Siena Athletics...
Since Siena's founding in 1937, athletics have played an important role in the development of its students and community.
In 1976, Siena's athletics program was elevated to NCAA Division I status. With that move, the College committed itself to upgrading its program and making all teams competitive. After stops in the ECAC Metro and North Atlantic Conference, Siena moved to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) in 1989, where it has made its mark.
