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:
Co-chairs: Kristi Erdal, Professor of Psychology, Chair of the Department of Human Biology and Kinesiology Jill Tiefenthaler, President, Professor of Economics
Members: 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 (https://www.coloradocollege.edu/offices/presidentsoffice/athletic-director-search/).
I look forward to working with the committee and the CC community in filling this important position.
