Call for Faculty Nominations to the Athletic Board

The Athletic Board serves as an advisory committee to the Chancellor and the Director of Intercollegiate Athletics on the fiscal operational aspects of the varsity sports program. The Board is also responsible for that program as it relates to the academic and educational objectives defined by the Senate.

The Senate Committee on Committees is seeking nominations of faculty members to fill two annual vacancies with terms ending 2026 and one partial term ending 2024 on the Athletic Board.  Michael LeRoy and Nikki Usher have terms ending 2022 and Brenda Lindsey, with a term ending 2024, has moved into one of the two Faculty Representatives positions. 

Nominations, willingness to serve, and a statement of interest and experience must be submitted through the online nomination form on or before 2:00 pm, Wednesday, March 23.

  • Neha Gothe, AHS, 2023
