NEW FACULTY ATHLETICS REPRESENTATIVES TO CARRY ON LEGACY OF MESERVE
The University is undergoing a transition in the role of Faculty Athletics Representative (FAR) to the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA), President Mary Ellen Mazey has announced.
For nearly 20 years, BGSU has been fortunate to have Dr. Lee Meserve, Distinguished Teaching Professor of biological sciences, as its NCAA representative, the president said in thanking him for his service and commitment. He “has done an outstanding job representing our student-athletes,” she added.
As one of the longest serving FARs in the country, Meserve has a wealth of experience and expertise. He will continue as a FAR this year and then BGSU will transition to two representatives selected this summer by the president: Dr. Ray Schneider, an associate professor of sport management in the School of Human Movement, Sport and Leisure Studies (College of Education and Human Development), and Dr. Donna Trautman, chair of the visual communications and technology education (VCTE) department and VCTE program coordinator in the College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering. Each will have primary responsibility for leading efforts in certain sports and will assist one another in others.
