Call for Faculty Nominations to the Athletic Board

The Athletic Board serves as an advisory committee to the Chancellor and the Athletic Director 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 Committee on Committees is seeking nominations of tenure system faculty members to fill two vacancies on the Athletic Board, created by the expiration of the terms of Margaret Kelley and Thomas Ulen.

Faculty members serve four-year terms. The following faculty from Senate nominations are continuing on the Board:

Cleo D'Arcy, ACES, 2015
Adrienne Dixson, EDUC, 2016
Rayvon Fouche, LAS, 2014
