Adam  Polacek

Position:
Director of Academic Services for Women's Basketball


Adam Polacek came to the Hilltop in 2014 as the women's basketball team's director of academic services for women's basketball. In his role with the Hoyas, he works closely with all of the women's basketball student-athletes organizing class schedules, working with professors to accommodate team travel, arranging tutors and serving as a mentor for the young women both on and off of the court.

Polacek came to Georgetown from Purdue University where he was an academic advisor for more than 2,000 students in the First-Year Engineering program. At Purdue, he advised students, monitored their progress toward program completion and coordinated Student Discussion Panels to provide information to current First-Year Engineers.

The Lincoln, Neb., native has worked extensively in college athletics at varying levels. He was an academic coordinator at the University of Tulsa working with freshmen on the football team as well as members of the men's and women's golf squads. In addition, Polacek was the tutor coordinator, where he interviewed, hired, trained and scheduled tutors, to assist student-athletes from all 16 Golden Hurricane athletic teams.

The year prior, Polacek spent a season at Indiana University as an assistant academic advisor for student-athletes. In Bloomington, he spent a majority of his time with members of both the Hoosier football team, as well as the women's water polo team.

Polacek received a master's degree in sports administration and leadership from Seattle University in 2011. While working on his master's, he served as a graduate assistant for student-athlete support and assisted the Redhawk student-athletes during the athletic department's transition back into Division I athletics.

A 2006 graduate of the University of Northern Iowa, Polacek received his Bachelor of Arts in elementary and middle school education after spending six semesters on the Dean's List. Following graduation, Polacek was a sixth grade teacher in Lincoln, Neb., for three years. He taught language arts, social studies and differentiated mathematics as well as coaching the boys soccer team at a local high school.

Polacek resides in Washington, D.C.
