In this podcast, Patti Phillips is joined by Deb Steward,
Associate Vice President and Director of Athletics and Recreation
at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.
Yes, Deb is the athletic director at TWO colleges at the same time! In February of 2020, Deb was named director of athletics for both Hobart and William Smith Colleges. This was a monumental and historic decision as the colleges had previously operated with two different ADs. She loves it, she’s rocking it, and she says “it’s the best of both worlds.” There’s a lot more on this in this podcast!
With over 30 years of experience at the Dlll level, Deb provides insight on how to raise money at small colleges by building and fostering relationships with the right people on campus and in the community. She also gives us tips on how to hire the right coaches and how to get experience and opportunities early in your career.
I hope you enjoy our conversation, and remember, we are women leaders.
