The Athletics Director (AD) is responsible for the development, management, coordination, and supervision of the competitive intercollegiate athletics program of Saint Martin’s University. Overseeing thirteen programs, with more than thirty coaches and two-hundred and fifty student athletes, the AD provides visionary leadership, strategic planning, and policy development for the department. The AD inspires the highest ethical standards for student athletes, cultivating a culture that builds character, mutual respect, and community living among student athletes, coaches, and departmental staff. The AD fosters an environment in which student athletes learn, embody, and live the Benedictine values and Catholic mission of Saint Martin’s University. In partnership with the Office of Institutional Advancement, the AD plays a direct role in raising funds for the department to ensure its success, stability, and viability within the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC). The AD administers the overall athletic budget, recruits and manages the coaches and departmental staff, and serves as a campus and community leader representing the Saint Martin’s mission and vision. The AD is responsible to ensure the department’s compliance with all university, national association and conference policies, and rules and regulations as a NCAA Division II member of the GNAC.




Established in 1895, Saint Martin’s University is the educational mission of Saint Martin’s Abbey, a Catholic Benedictine monastery, whose members pray, work, and live together on the University campus. The physical beauty of Saint Martin’s 300-acre campus reflects the rich intellectual and spiritual nature of its presence in the Pacific Northwest.


Essential features of University life are animated by its Benedictine identity and its participation in the centuries-old traditions of Catholic intellectual thought and the search for truth.


Thus, the University honors students and guides them towards achieving academic excellence. Superior teaching is the expected norm. Rooted in the long tradition of the liberal arts, the University curriculum cultivates creativity and the ability to communicate and pursue ideas; critical thinking and independent inquiry; academic proficiency; the formation of sound ethical judgments; and service to humanity.


Reflecting the Benedictine virtue of hospitality, the University welcomes and, indeed, seeks students and employees not only from the Pacific Northwest, but also from other parts of the nation and the world at its main and extension campuses. Saint Martin’s treasures persons of all ages, religions, and nationalities as it encourages cognizance of diverse viewpoints and an appreciation of all cultures.


Ranked by Niche as the second (#2) most diverse private college in Washington State in 2020. Saint Martin’s is extremely proud of our student diversity.  Our university treasures persons of all abilities, ages, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, orientations, races, and religions.  In particular, we know that students educated in an ethnically diverse setting perform better academically and reap greater professional success than their peers from more homogeneous learning environments. We proudly celebrate that our student population is 51% undergraduate and 32% graduate students of color.  We are committed to pursuing an employee community that reflects a similar, if not the same percentage.  


Therefore, we intentionally encourage and request that members of historically underrepresented groups apply to join this community.  All of us, from all backgrounds, are making a commitment to do and be better for our students, faculty, and staff.
