Two UVa Athletic Administrators To Participate In Athletic Directors' Institute
July 12, 2006
CHARLOTTESVILLE – Two University of Virginia associate athletic directors will take part in the 2006 Athletic Directors’ Institute sponsored by the Division I-A Athletic Directors’ Association. Jason Bauman, associate director of athletics for facilities and operations, and Jim Booz, associate director of athletics for compliance, will participate in the three-day institute scheduled for July 24-26 in Las Colinas, Tex.
The primary purpose of the institute is for its faculty, which features several current directors of athletics, to share career experiences with participants and to provide the most current information available on each topic of the curriculum. Curriculum topics include leadership, ethical considerations, the role of the director of athletics and professional conduct.
“Jason and Jim have both done a great job with the responsibilities in their present positions and have established clear goals for their careers,” said UVa Executive Associate Director of Athletics Jon Oliver. “This is an exciting professional development opportunity for them. I went through this institute myself and I believe they will benefit greatly from the experience.”
Bauman is in his ninth year at Virginia. He was promoted to associate director of athletics for facilities and operations in November of 2000. He previously served as an assistant director of athletics for facilities and operations. Before coming to UVa, Bauman served as assistant athletic facilities coordinator at the University of Kentucky. He also held the position of field house manager at Kentucky.
Bauman earned his bachelor’s degree in business education from Buena Vista University (Iowa) in 1990 and a master’s degree from Western Illinois University in 1991.
Booz is in his third year at UVa. Before coming to Virginia, he was a member of the athletics department staff at Vanderbilt University. Booz joined the Vanderbilt athletics department as an academic counselor for student-athletes in 1995 and was named director of eligibility and summer programs in 1998. He was named assistant athletics director for compliance in 2000. Before working at Vanderbilt, he was the director of intramurals at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
Booz earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education with a concentration in sports management from Tennessee-Martin in 1995 and a master’s degree in higher education administration from Middle Tennessee State University in 1998.
