Tasha Harris

Aug. 16, 2012

WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Women's Basketball Director of Operations Tasha Harris recently returned from the NCAA Leadership Institute at the University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill. Harris was one of 50 ethnic minority professionals to take part in the seven-day retreat sponsored by the NCAA.

"This was by far the best professional development I have experienced. I learned more than I could have imagined in the seven intense days I was in Chapel Hill," said Harris. "The NCAA Leadership Institute exposed to me who I was as a leader and where I need to grow. It was an honor to gain the opportunity to participate in such a prestigious program and the experience I had is something I will take with me for a lifetime."

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

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 focused on leadership and administration, finances and fundraising, boosters, public and media relations and human resources. Additionally, the group heard lectures from institute alums and visited some local campuses.

The featured speaker on the opening day was the chancellor at the University of Kansas, Dr. Bernadette Gray-Little.

Attendees included entry-mid-level managers, assistant and associate directors, department managers and directors as well as assistant and associate athletic directors.

"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," said Curtis Hollomon, the Director of NCAA Leadership Development.

 

 

Harris' trip was made possible thanks to a grant from the BIG EAST Conference.
