Very Few Women in Top Athletic Administration Positions at Major U.S. Universities

The latest report from the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida finds that there are 22 women university presidents at the 120 universities that make up the Football Bowl Subdivision, the nation’s major college football programs.

At these 120 universities there are five women who serve as athletics directors. They are at Arizona State University, University of California, Berkeley, the University of Nevada, North Carolina State University, and Western Michigan University.

There are no women among the 11 conference commissioners that are members of the Football Bowl Subdivision. In fact, there has never been a woman who has led any of these conferences.
