Athletics can be an integral part of a liberal arts education as it adds breadth and depth to a student’s life. Athletics is about relationships which develop through a shared commitment to strive for excellence in sports competition. A coach is the most successful when they help to transform a student’s perspective about their self-worth through the physical, emotional, social and spiritual development involved in the athletic training process.

Women’s Track and Field Coach
