    SD Mines: McCampbell To Enter NCAA Mentoring Program

    RAPID CITY, S.D. – Coming to the School of Mines in February of 2009, Tiffany McCampbell has been promoted four times in the Hardrocker Athletic Dept. Hired as the Lady Hardrocker volleyball head coach, she has been elevated to the Senior Associate Athletic Director for Internal Operations and also serves as the Senior Woman Administrator.
    Directing internal operations means McCampbell is responsible for providing daily leadership and organization for coaches, staff and scholar athletes. She is also involved in all personnel issues regarding the hiring, dismissal and non-renewal of contract employees within the athletic department. Acting as the Title IX Deputy and Investigator, McCampbell also provides by-stander and Title IX investigator training for all teams, faculty and staff.
    These are just a few of her responsibilities in the Hardrocker Athletics Department.
    McCampbell's hard work has not gone unnoticed as she has just been selected to participate in the eighth class of mentees for the NCAA & Division 2 Athletics Directors Association Women and Minorities Mentoring Program.  
    The program is intended to advance those currently in senior-level positions within athletics administration to the next step as a director of athletics. The program is one-year long, and will allow McCampbell to focus on her values and how they fit into her execution of leadership within higher education and athletics.
    "Anytime that the staff can get mentoring from someone, especially in a different part of the country, I encourage it," said Hardrocker Athletics Director Joel Lueken. "It is a really positive thing for someone's career, and then they are able to use what they have learned here on campus and in the community, and that's something we want to take advantage of," says Athletic Director Joel Lueken.
    McCampbell will meet her mentor in July at the NCAA Headquarters, located in Indianapolis, Indiana. While getting acquainted with her mentor at the three-day orientation, McCampbell will keep in touch for the next year by monthly webinars and three in-person visits.
    "To me, I think it's a great opportunity for me to expand my network of Div. II professionals, but also a great chance to learn from a high quality established Div. II Athletics Director," McCampbell said of this opportunity. It's always great to put yourself in a situation where someone can teach you a lot about the trials and tribulations of being an athletic director – especially if they are in a different area of the country and going through different situations that are unique to life."
    The most impressive part of McCampbell's energy is that at the end of a long day, she gets to go home to her husband, Colin, who will be teaching at West Middle School this upcoming year, and their twin boys: Kemper and Crosby. The boys, at a year old, have kept the former coaches on their toes.
    "Having the boys has led to learning and creating a new balance. With Colin working in public school it leads to us both having crazy hours, but it's great to be at the SD Mines where you're surrounded by people who care about your people as their own."
    McCampbell will begin orientation, July 18 and will return on July 20.
