STORRS, Conn. -
Beth Goetz, who serves as the UConn Division of Athletics’ Chief Operating Officer and Senior Woman Administrator, has been selected to participate in the 2017 NCAA Pathway Program. The prestigious program is limited to just 25 senior-level athletics administrators nationally, who have committed to becoming directors of athletics.
The Pathway Program provides participants an unprecedented opportunity to gain insight into every facet of an athletics department, preparing them to become well-rounded leaders who are equipped with the tools an effective athletics director needs.
Each program participant is mentored by a current NCAA athletics director and a current university chancellor or president who have committed to helping the Pathway participants grow during the program and after completing it.
“I am very honored and excited to have been selected to the NCAA Pathway Program,” said Goetz. “It is an incredible professional opportunity that will certainly provide tools to enhance the impact I have in my role at UConn, and help prepare me for future leadership positions. I am very grateful to UConn Director of Athletics David Benedict for allowing me to have this opportunity.”
The program starts in late June with a week-long session at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis, continues with quarterly meetings throughout the year, and culminates in June 2018 at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics convention in Washington, D.C.
These in-person sessions will include opportunities to engage with university and college presidents who will shed light on the role of athletic directors, reinforce the value of athletics on campus and provide candid answers to participants’ questions.
Along with NCAA governance meetings, program participants will participate in a simulation of their first staff meeting as a director of athletics, receive advice on beginning their first 90 days in an athletics director chair, participate in case studies on campus-relevant topics and learn best practices from current and former athletics directors.
Goetz joined the UConn staff in June of 2016 and oversees all internal departments in the UConn Division of Athletics, including the business office, compliance, sports medicine and strength and conditioning and facilities. She serves as a key member of the Division’s Senior Leadership Team and is the sport administrator for football, men’s soccer and softball.
Goetz came to UConn after a three-year tenure at Minnesota, which saw her serve as the school’s Interim Director of Athletics in 2015-16. Prior to that, she served Minnesota as the Deputy Athletics Director and SWA.
Goetz was an Associate Athletic Director and the Senior Woman Administrator at Butler from 2008-13.
She spent 12 years at Missouri-St. Louis prior to her time at Butler. Goetz was an assistant athletic director and senior woman administrator for her final eight years and was the women's soccer head coach for 11 years.
Goetz was an accomplished collegiate soccer player and earned All-America recognition at Brevard College (N.C.) and then played at Clemson. Goetz earned an Associate of Arts degree from Brevard in 1994 and a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Clemson in 1996. She received her master’s degree from Missouri-St. Louis in 2000.
