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 one vacancy on the Athletic Board, created by the expiration of the term of Brenda Lindsey.

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

  • James Anderson, EDUC, 2021
  • Paul Heald, LAW, 2021
  • Michael LeRoy, LER, 2022
  • Endalyn Taylor, FAA, 2022
  • Neha Gothe, AHS, 2023

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 February 10, 2020 Senate meeting, and the top two names will be forwarded to the Chancellor to fill one vacancy.
