Commissioned by the Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity, ASC is being assisted with this review by Keri Becker, Associate Athletic Director of Grand Valley State University, and Timothy O’Brien of Libby O'Brien Kingsley & Champion.

Alaska Fairbanks is a unique school athletically as its ten sports belong to five different conferences and are multi-divisional within the NCAA. The men’s ice hockey program is NCAA Division I, the co-ed rifle and men’s and women’s Nordic skiing teams compete in the non-divisional NCAA national championships while their other six sports are NCAA Division II.

"By using their [ASC's] knowledge to get to our short list of candidates that fit what we sought in an athletic director, we easily spent half the amount of time that is normally required in a search like this.   Additionally, they enhanced the pool of by bringing several qualified candidates to the finalist list.  Showing that they know talent, two of the individuals that they sought out, and applied to our position, were hired by and are current NCAA Division II AD’s.  Our search finished with securing a quality hire.  If our institution ever needed to conduct a search for an athletic director, we would without question use the services of ASC."
