The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) has selected Valley City State University as a NAIA Champions of Character Institution.
Valley City State University Champions of Character representative Gregg Horner states ' We are proud to be selected again this year. We are fortunate to have coaches, faculty, staff and student-athletes who are committed to VCSU and Valley City.'

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Champions of Character program is designed to instill an understanding of character values in sport and provide practical tools for student-athletes, coaches and parents to use in modeling exemplary character traits.
Launched by the NAIA in 2000, the Champions of Character program addresses character issues more comprehensively than any other national program for youth. The program currently reaches hundreds of thousands of students on nearly 300 college and university campuses in North America and extends into their surrounding communities.
