(INDIANAPOLIS) - The NCAA Division 1 Board of Directors has restructured how schools and conferences will govern themselves.

A 16-2 vote adopted the model that the NCAA says is designed to give student-athletes a vote on when decisions are made.

The number of conferences of the five largest required to sponsor a proposal has been reduced from three to one.

Any amendment is subject to approval by a five-conference group of school presidents before being voted on by the whole group.
