Northern Arizona University officials have announced today their selection to lead the university's athletic department.
According to information from NAU, Lisa Campos, senior associate athletic director at the University of Texas at El Paso, received the nod as vice president for Intercollegiate Athletics.
"Lisa exemplifies NAU's dual commitment to excellence in athletics and academics," stated NAU President John Haeger in a prepared statement. "Elevating this position from athletic director to vice president is a first for NAU. As a vice president, she will literally be at the table with our academic and administrative vice presidents working to advance NAU's performance goals on and off the field."
Campos stated, "NAU has established a great tradition in athletics while emphasizing student success, and that's a strong foundation to build on. I look forward to building an even stronger bond between athletics and academics, and to answering President Haeger's call for consistently competitive teams."
The announcement is pending approval by the Arizona Board of Regents. A starting date for Campos has not been set.
