What does " identification with " mean in the sentence? There’s a certain amount of identification with the athletic program, so a more prominent athletic programs– clearly male athletic programs– are going to help us to attract more men. Would you be kind to explain the sentence for me?

You may also use likeness or resemblance instead of identification with.

“To identify with” is a vague phrase. It is generally used to mean that a person feels that they are part of something or some group, and that group/thing is important to them. Here, it appears to mean that some people (student, alumni) have very strong positive feelings about athletic programs at their school. They feel good when “their team” wins. The athletic programs help build school spirit and loyalty.
