Paula Morrow appointed faculty athletics representative
Paula Morrow, University professor of management, has been appointed Iowa
State's faculty athletics representative to the National Collegiate Athletic
Association (NCAA) and the Big 12 Conference. President Gregory Geoffroy
appointed Morrow to a three-year, renewable appointment that begins Sept. 1.
Morrow has been at Iowa State since 1978 and has been involved in Cyclone
athletics for the past 10 years. She served on the search committees for
former athletics director Gene Smith, current athletics director Bruce Van
De Velde and several coaching vacancies. She has served on the Athletics
Council since 1999 and on its executive board since 2001.
On the council, she was a member of the equity and academic integrity
committees, chairing the latter the last two years.
Last summer, she spearheaded an effort to revise the council's constitution
and by-laws to give all council members meaningful roles and to include the
faculty senate in the process of identifying faculty membership.
Morrow also was part of the academic integrity subgroup of the NCAA
recertification effort (2000-02), helped with Iowa State's hosting of an
NCAA women's regional basketball tournament (March 2002), and chaired
several student-athlete ineligibility appeal committees.
Morrow was selected from a group of tenured and tenure-track faculty members
who applied for the representative position. A screening committee, chaired
by Library dean Olivia Madison, helped narrow the pool to three finalists.
Other groups that interviewed the finalists included a group of
student-athletes, the athletics council and the faculty senate executive
