UTICA, N.Y. (WUTR/WFXV/WPNY) – Colgate University’s Dr. Nicki Moore, who has been the school’s Vice President and Athletic Director since June of 2018, was named the Nike FCS Executive of the Year by the organization Women Leaders in College Sports.

Moore has helped Colgate Athletics reach a 97 percent graduation success rate among student-athletes, alongside eight league championships and 12 NCAA or IRA playoff appearances, and outside of the university has served on the NCAA’s Strategic Visioning and Planning Committee and Mental Health Task Force, along with being a Fellow of the Collegiate Clinical Counseling Sport Psychology Association and serving as President of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Director Association.

Only three Division I Athletic Directors have ever won Executive of the Year from the WLCS, with Moore being the only one to earn the honor at an FCS institution.
