PHILADELPHIA — SJU President Mark C. Reed, Ed.D., was named chair of the Atlantic 10 Council of Presidents at their annual spring meetings. Dr. Reed replaces outgoing chair Stephen Knapp, Ph.D., president of George Washington University, for a three-year term beginning in July.
The Atlantic 10 Conference consists of 14 members across eight states and Washington, D.C., providing an enhanced student-athlete experience through 21 nationally competitive championship sports. The basketball-centric conference, which regularly receives multiple bids to the NCAA Basketball Championships, is committed to integrity, educational excellence and providing quality equitable championship experiences for its student-athletes, coaches, and support staff.
“I am looking forward to taking on the role as chair of the Council of Presidents and continuing the outstanding work that is already underway, thanks to Dr. Knapp's leadership,” says Reed. “A-10 athletes are known not only for their competitive success, but also for their academic achievement, thanks in large part to the conference's emphasis on the total student experience."
