As our student-athletes and universities continue to cement our league's standing as the "Conference of Champions," this past campaign was no exception. Garnering a nation-leading 13 NCAA titles during the 2018-19 season, our student-athletes have now led the country in NCAA championships for 14-straight seasons and 53 of the past 59 years now with a total of 526 titles across our 12 institutions. Our Conference's mission has been and continues to be to develop the next gen- eration of leaders by championing excellence in academics, athletics and the well-being of our student-athletes. Looking back at the many successes of our student-athletes and universities this past year, I think we can all be proud of our collective efforts to achieve this mission. One of the highlights for me each and every year is to listen to and watch our student-athletes in action off the field of play, be it at our Council meetings, media days, at our China Game, or around our campuses – these remarkable young women and men inspire us with their talent, dedication and desire to make a positive impact, and make us all work harder to achieve our mission on their behalf. It is their continued effort that combines our universities' collective history of dominance with a future of excellence. The Pac-12 is also proud to continue providing our student-athletes with un- precedented exposure across our television partners with ESPN, Fox and Pac-12 Networks. From continuing to televise 850 live events, to engaging fans across platforms, to providing our athletics departments with additional support, Pac- 12 Networks continues to provide our universities with incredible resources and flexibility. Lastly, I want to once again express my appreciation to the leaders of our member universities, who together form the governing council of the Pac-12 Conference. Our group's vision and leadership has kept the Pac-12 at the forefront of intercol- legiate athletics both athletically and academically, as well as for their continued focus on the overall health and welfare of our student-athletes. I also want to express my appreciation and admiration of our athletic directors, senior women's administrators, faculty athletic representatives, student-athlete representatives, coaches and their staffs, as well as the Conference staff. With many reasons for excitement across the Pac-12 this year, I look forward to another promising campaign in 2019-20 and to all of the magical moments on and off the field our student-athletes will undoubtedly create for themselves, their families, our universities and our fans. I hope you enjoy learning more about the Pac-12 Conference. Sincerely, Commissioner Larry Scott LARRY SCOTT PAC-12 COMMISSIONER
