About the NACDA Internship Program

Beginning in the fall of 1984, the NACDA internship program has provided opportunities for more than 180 college students and graduates who are aspiring collegiate athletics administrators. NACDA interns hail from all over the United States, as well as a few international students, who commit to the year-long internship.

During the NACDA internship, students are exposed to different aspects involved in the field of athletics administration.  This internship serves as a way to increase a student's knowledge of the administrative duties within collegiate athletics by providing practical experience.

Lee Reed and Dawn (Moore) Rogers became the first NACDA interns to earn the position of director of athletics; Reed at Cleveland State (currently at Georgetown) and Moore at Xavier. Reed, currently NACDA's 3rd Vice President, is also the first former intern to become a NACDA Officer.

NACDA has employed several former interns including - Jamie Bouyer; Jason Galaska; Laurie Garrison; Chris Green; Jude Killy; Dana (Ingraham) LeRoy; Melissa (Dukov) Lynch; Pat Manak; Denise (Ladd) Manak; Katie Newman; Liz (Zielie) McFarland; Becky Parke; Lisa Polak; Ryan Virtue and Matt Wolfert.
