President Spina named to NCAA presidential forum

The Atlantic 10 Conference appointed University President Eric F. Spina to the NCAA Presidential Forum, the primary advisory entity to the NCAA Division I Board of Directors. Spina replaces Davidson President Carol Quillen, who represented the A-10 for the last four years.

In a news release from the A-10 announcing the appointment, the conference noted UD athletics highlights during Spina’s tenure, such as the completion of a $72 million renovation of UD Arena. The press release also cited his academic background as a mechanical and aerospace engineer with 20 years of research experience, two U.S. patents and more than 30 published papers.

“The A-10 is fortunate to have outstanding presidents, administrators, coaches and staff willing to serve in the NCAA governance process,” said A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade. “As a conference, we are committed to participating in legislative matters and providing a voice at the national level on all matters affecting intercollegiate athletics.”
