Undergraduate Fireside Q&A with
IU Athletic Director Fred Glass

An informal Q&A session

Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Hutton Honors College Great Room (811 E. Seventh St.)
SIGN-UP REQUIRED: See details below

Since assuming the role of Indiana University vice president and director of intercollegiate athletics on January 1, 2009, Fred Glass has worked to return IU to its place as one of the premier athletics departments in the country. At the press conference announcing his appointment, Glass set out the four priorities that have been the hallmark of his tenure as athletic director:

1) play by the rules
2) achieve academically and graduate student-athletes
3) excel athletically and win championships
4) integrate athletics into the rest of the University

Now in just his fourth year as athletic director, Glass has been described as "a dynamic and passionate" leader, the "driving force behind his alma mater's return to athletic success consistent with these priorities and values."

What are the responsibilities of an athletic director and what impact can be made on how sports are played, who wins, who comes to see them, who stays for four years, and who graduates? What qualities make an AD a good leader and motivator? Are athletics important for a university? Should student-athletes be paid to play? What has been the impact of Title IX at IU? Who will win the Old Oaken Bucket on November 24? What are the questions you would most like to ask Fred Glass?

Come to the HHC fireside chat with Fred Glass to learn about athletics at IU and the issues that face collegiate programs around the country. For more information on Fred Glass and his career at IU, click here.
