Call for faculty athletic representative
Under NCAA and WIAC policy, UW-Eau Claire is to have one male and one female faculty or academic staff member with faculty rank serving as a faculty academic representative (FAR). The chancellor appoints each FAR, who serves for a term of unspecified duration. As the result of a retirement, the chancellor is looking for one full-time male faculty or academic staff member with faculty rank to serve as FAR. Responsibilities include:
• Play a lead role to ensure academic integrity and institutional control of athletics and enhance the student-athlete experience.
• Serve as a senior adviser, outside of the athletics department, to the chancellor on matters related to intercollegiate athletics.
• Represent UW-Eau Claire at conferences and national meetings — three to five meetings each year.
• Serve as a member of the University Athletic Committee.
In addition, the FAR should be knowledgeable about the academic preparation and performance of each team and assist in upholding high academic standards and expectations for student athletes.
If you have questions or would like more information about this appointment, contact Scott Kilgallon, director of athletics, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 836-5858. To be considered for appointment as FAR, please express your interest by contacting Andrew Soll, vice chancellor for business and student services, at email@example.com by Oct. 11.
