UAM Chancellor Appointed To NCAA Division II Presidents Council

November 15th, 2012 by

University of Arkansas at Monticello Chancellor Jack Lassiter has been appointed to a four-year term on the NCAA Division II Presidents Council, which establishes and implements general policies for intercollegiate athletics at the Division II level.

Lassiter joins Dr. Everette Freeman,president of Albany State University, as one of two new members of the council.

“I am a firm believer that intercollegiate athletics is an enriching experience for student-athletes and enhances the overall college experience for all of our students,” said Lassiter. “I am honored to be selected to the NCAA Division II’s President’s Council.”

Since becoming UAM’s chancellor in 2004, Lassiter has overseen a number of improvements to the university’s intercollegiate athletics program, including the construction of an indoor practice facility containing a weight training facility, coaches offices and meeting rooms; the renovation of Convoy Leslie-Cotton Boll Stadium, including the addition of chair-back seating and an enlarged and renovated press box;interior renovations to Steelman Fieldhouse, and current construction and renovation of the baseball field.

The Division II Presidents Council is a 15-member body comprised of presidents and chancellors from all regions of the country. The Council serves as a leadership structure and forum for presidential interests in Division II intercollegiate athletics and deals with issues such as implementing policies adopted by the NCAA’s Executive Committee, establishing and directing the general policy of Division II, creating a strategic plan for Division II, and assuring gender and ethnic diversity among its membership.

Lassiter became UAM’s 11th chief executive officer in 2004. He first joined the university in 1977 as director of the Learning Development Center. After two years as dean of college and student services at Wharton County (Texas) Junior College, he returned to Monticello in 1980 as vice chancellor for university relations and student services, beginning a 17-year stay on the UAM campus. In 1993 he was named vice chancellor for academic affairs and student services.

Lassiter left UAM in 1997 to become chancellor of the UA Community College at Batesville before becoming the executive vice president of the UA System in Little Rock.

For more information, contact Jim Brewer, director of media services, at (870) 460-1274.
