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 Committee on Committees is seeking nominations of faculty members to fill two vacancies on the Athletic Board, created by the expiration of the terms of Kathryn Clancy and Michael LeRoy.

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

  • James Anderson, EDUC, 2021
  • Kelly Bost, ACES, 2019
  • Paul Heald, LAW, 2021
  • Michael Raycraft, AHS, 2019
  • Antonio Sotomayor, LIBR, 2020

A complete list of current Athletic Board members is available at:

The Senate Committee on Committees will present a slate of faculty nominees as stipulated in the Senate Bylaws. The Senate will vote on this slate at the March 5, 2018 Senate meeting, and the top four names will be forwarded to the Chancellor to fill the two vacancies.

We invite you to make nominations; faculty may also self-nominate. Nominations must include the nominee's willingness to serve and a statement of interest and experience. The statement of interest and experience should be a brief (150 words or less) description of the qualifications of the nominee; professional or other activities relevant to the nomination, such as prior Senate or campus committee work; how the nominee would contribute to the committee; why the nominee is interested; and include reference to:

  1. Interest/knowledge of men's athletics, women's athletics, and minority participation in the intercollegiate athletic program;
  2. Knowledge of the University's educational and academic objectives; 
  3. Knowledge of business and financial management; and
  4. Interest in student-athlete welfare issues.

Thank you for your assistance. We look forward to receiving nominations.

Nominations, willingness to serve, and a statement of interest and experience must be submitted on or before Friday, February 9, 2018
