CRR Avron Abraham, University of Delaware faculty director of the Center for Academic Success and University Studies and a faculty member in the Department of Behavioral Health and Nutrition, will assume the role as the University’s Faculty Athletic Representative, beginning in May 2020.
In this position, Abraham will become the the official voting delegate for the University on NCAA matters and works with UD’s Faculty Board on Athletics.
“I have served on the board for the past two years, where I have gained an appreciation of the time and effort that our student athletes invest to ensure their success both athletically and academically at the University of Delaware,” Abraham said. “It is my hope that, as the Faculty Athletic Representative working closely with the Faculty Athletic Board, we can help support our student athletes as they strive to meet their goals, both inside and outside the classroom.”
Abraham, who is not running anymore due to physical limitations, hosted Creek Road Runners’ once-upon-a-time-annual Lower Slower 10K social run.
