More than 700 student-athletes attended the event on Multi-Sport Field
Reed oversees one of the largest broad-based intercollegiate athletics programs in the nation with 29 varsity programs and more than 750 student-athletes, a full 10 percent of the undergraduate population at Georgetown. Under his leadership the Hoyas have remained prominent on the national landscape while maintaining their commitment to the values that define the oldest Catholic and Jesuit University in the country.
Georgetown athletic teams have been as competitive off the field as they have been on them. Last year, student-athletes combined to post a 3.2 grade-point average, the highest mark since that figure has been tracked. In addition, 13 teams were recognized by the NCAA for high Academic Progress Rate scores, 94 percent of student-athletes graduated and nearly 300 student-athletes were selected to the BIG EAST Academic Honor Roll, the most in the BIG EAST Conference.
In addition to his administrative oversight, Reed has led the athletics department's ambitious $125 million fundraising campaign as a part of the University's overall "For Generations to Come" Campaign, which has raised $95 million already. The largest fundraising effort in GU Athletics history includes $65M in infrastructure improvements, with the majority of those dollars earmarked for the John R. Thompson Jr. Intercollegiate Athletics Center (IAC), a 144,000 square-foot-practice and training facility that will greatly enhance the support facilities available to Georgetown's student-athletes.
The campaign has also raised $15 million for endowed scholarships, $40 million for infrastructure and $36 million for current use funds. The department set records for ticket sales during the 2012-13 season, raising $4.2 million, Hoyas Unlimited experienced its seventh-straight year of increased support and in 2013-14 and Georgetown's licensing reached its highest mark since 1999. Improvements have also been made with almost $2 million in improvements to upgrade Shaw Field, a $1 million gift to improve baseball and $300,000 for work done in the varsity weight room.
On the field of play, Georgetown teams continued to be among the best in the BIG EAST Conference and nationally. The Hoyas have finished 66th or higher every year in the Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Standings in each of the last five years.
The women's cross country team won the NCAA Championship in 2011, men's soccer advanced to the National Championship game in 2012 and the sailing program has won multiple national titles during this span. The men's basketball team won the BIG EAST Regular Season title in 2013 and has played in the postseason each year, while the women's basketball team reached the Sweet 16 in 2011. In addition, men's golf, women's soccer and women's lacrosse have also made NCAA Tournament appearances.
Reed continues to be active nationally, serving on the NCAA Championships Cabinet, The John McLendon Foundation Board and the NACDA Executive Committee. He is also a member of the NCAA Basketball Academic Enhancement Group, a working group composed of presidents, chancellors, head coaches, commissioners, athletic directors and faculty athletic representatives, which was established to develop strategies to enhance the academic performance and graduation rates of NCAA Division I men's basketball. In addition, each summer Reed returns to the classroom to co-teach a graduate level leadership class in the sports industry management program in Georgetown's School of Continuing Studies. He also serves as a mentor in the NCAA Pathways program, is on the advisory board for the LGBTQ Center at Georgetown and is a guest speaker at the NCAA, NACDA and other national programs.
Reed is well-respected nationally, having represented the Horizon League on the NCAA Management Council and as the president of the NCAA I-AAA Athletic Director's Association in 2007-08. He also served as chairman of the John McLendon Memorial Minority Postgraduate Scholarship Awards committee, which is operated through NACDA, and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. In March of 2005, he was named one of the 50 Most Powerful African-Americans in Sports by Black Enterprise magazine.
Reed came to Georgetown after serving as the director of athletics at Cleveland State University in Ohio for eight years. A former basketball standout at Cleveland State, he joined the Vikings Athletics Department in the summer of 2002. Under Reed's leadership, the Viking athletics program moved into the upper ranks of the Horizon League and was recognized as one of the top programs in the state of Ohio. Reed oversaw a department that captured 11 Horizon League Championships, as well as six runner-up finishes in his final three years. In addition, Cleveland State University was represented at the NCAA Championships 15 times during that span.
Reed rejoined the Vikings after spending the previous seven years (1995-2002) at Eastern Michigan University, the last four as associate athletic director for internal affairs.
A four-year letterwinner in men's basketball at Cleveland State, Reed played on teams that compiled a 61-47 mark, serving as team captain for the 1982-83 season. Reed then served as an assistant men's basketball coach at the University of New Mexico from 1984-86. He later received a master's degree in sports administration from UNM in 1994.
