    Information on Athletics Director Search

    Dear Faculty, Staff and Students,

    The search for a new athletics director has begun and I’m very pleased to announce that the following members of the Colorado College community have agreed to serve on the search committee:
    Kristi Erdal, Professor of Psychology, Chair of the Department of Human Biology and Kinesiology
    Jill Tiefenthaler, President, Professor of Economics
    CooXooEii Black ’21, Student
    Paul Buckley, Assistant Vice President and Director of The Butler Center
    Heather Carroll ’89, Former Trustee
    Pedro de Araujo, Vice Provost, Associate Professor of Economics, Faculty Athletics Representative
    Joe Ellis ’80, Trustee
    Anne Goodman James, Head Swimming Coach, Director of Aquatics, Senior Woman Administrator
    Mike Haviland, Head Hockey Coach
    Rachael Martino ’19, Student
    Miguel Mendez ’19, Student
    Tony Rosendo ’02, Trustee
    Corinne Scheiner, Maytag Professor of Comparative Literature
    Mike Slade ’79, Trustee
    The committee will meet for the first time on September 14th.
    Search committee co-chair Kristi Erdal and I have decided to use the firm Odgers Berndtson to help with the search. Consultants Jennifer Biehn and Greg Santore are well-known in the field and have an excellent record of success in higher education athletics director searches.
    I will post periodic updates on the search webpage, which will soon also include instructions on how to submit nominations (   
    I look forward to working with the committee and the CC community in filling this important position.
