BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Southeastern Conference has appointed seven individuals from campuses across the league to review issues surrounding student-athlete conduct.

Missouri Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin will chair the group. Other members include Tennessee Chancellor Jimmy Cheek, Georgia law professor David Shipley, Vanderbilt athletic director David Williams, Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin, Arkansas associate athletic director Julie Cromer and LSU associate dean of students Matt Gregory.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey announced the group's membership Thursday. Sankey had said in July that he would form a collection of campus leaders to discuss and review student-athlete behavior.

The group will discuss existing NCAA and conference policies governing student-athlete conduct and related eligibility outcomes among other issues.
