WASHINGTON - Georgetown University hosted a portion of the NCAA's annual Leadership Institute, a program designed to assist ethnic minorities in mapping their careers in college athletics.

The NCAA Leadership Institute assists approximately 30 ethnic minorities (male and female) annually in strategically mapping and planning their careers through the exploration of the intercollegiate athletics community. This workshop is uniquely designed workshop provides tailored programming to participants on NCAA member institution campuses.

"We are really excited to be able to be able to play a role in the growth and advancement of such a dynamic group of young, talented administrators," Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed said. "Georgetown's mission for diversity and inclusion in intercollegiate athletics is at the core of the Institute and we're very glad to be part of this great resource."

The format of the institute allows participants to diversify their network, become exposed to key stakeholders within college administration and receive an in-depth view of the opportunities to serve within the NCAA governance structure as they advance their careers.

During the workshop, participants focus on leadership and administration, finances and fundraising, boosters, public and media relations, and human resources.

"The focus of the NCAA Leadership Institute is to assist ethnic minority males and females with exploration of the landscape of intercollegiate athletics and the intersection of their career goals and ambitions, from values clarification to intellectual knowledge," Curtis Hollomon, the Director of NCAA Leadership Development said. "Georgetown University Athletics provided an insightful education and informational platform for the 2013 Class. From administrators to coaches, they were all reflective and open in sharing with the participants their personal and professional journeys."

Several members of the Georgetown University athletics were chosen to provide input to the participants. Among Georgetown's participants were Senior Associate Athletics Director for Internal Operations Dan Trump, Associate Athletics Director for Finance & Business Sharon Brummell, as well as head coaches Keith Brown (women's basketball), Arlisa Hagan (volleyball), Katie Brophy (women's golf), Brian Wiese (men's soccer) and Miranda Paris (women's rowing).

"It was a great experience to be able to sit with the participants and to learn about their backgrounds and for them to hear about my path," Brophy said. "There was a chance to have a lot of interaction in terms of challenges that coaches and staff face and how we can react to those situations. I had the opportunity to work with one of the participants (Korinth Patterson) for three years at Indiana University, and it was great to reconnect with her since she has seen such success at the Mid-American Conference. College athletics is very interconnected, and this was a great networking opportunity for us as coaches. The participants' commitment to professional development in attending this program helps bring you back to work with a renewed sense of energy."
