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
1) play by the rules
2) achieve academically and graduate
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
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
