DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

ABOUT DUQUESNE
Duquesne University was founded by the Congregation of the Holy Spirit in 1878 as a Catholic college for Pittsburgh's poor immigrants. In 1911, it became the state's first Catholic university. For much of its history, Duquesne was defined by its Pittsburgh campus and retained the character of a locally-focused, primarily undergraduate institution.

Today, Duquesne is recognized on the national stage as a comprehensive institution of excellent quality offering a strong core of the liberal arts and sciences combined with a robust array of professional school offerings. The University embraces a broad mission and serves a variety of learners in multiple contexts. This private institution with a current total enrollment of approximately 10,000 students (about 6,000 undergraduate and 4,000 graduate and professional students) educates traditional and non-traditional students through small classes, innovative instruction, and rigorous coursework. Through its nine schools, the University offers degree programs at the baccalaureate, professional, masters and doctoral levels while also supporting an ambitious research profile. To learn more about Duquesne's reputation and rankings go to www.duq.edu/about/facts-and-rankings.

Duquesne is situated in the heart of Pittsburgh, a vibrant metropolitan region of 2.3 million people that has been recognized world-wide for its livability, welcoming atmosphere, and professional opportunity. The campus is a short walk from downtown and only 30 minutes from the Pittsburgh International Airport. Pittsburgh has long been cited as an exemplar of urban transformation. It has converted its manufacturing-based profile into a diversified economy which features financial services, technology, and distribution offerings. A mix of Fortune 50, 500, and 1000 companies - Alcoa, BNY Mellon, Bayer, Consol Energy, Dick's Sporting Goods, Federated Investors, H.J. Heinz, Koppers, PNC Financial Services, PPG Industries, and U.S. Steel among them - call the city home.

DUQUESNE ATHLETICS

Duquesne University seeks an experienced and energetic leader for its intercollegiate athletics program. Duquesne competes at the NCAA Division I level in the Atlantic 10 Conference in all sports with the exception of football, which competes in the Northeast Conference. Its 16 sports teams include men's and women's basketball, cross-country, soccer, tennis, and indoor/outdoor track and field teams; men's football; and women's lacrosse, rowing, swimming, and volleyball. The University's varsity athletes are known as the Dukes.
Duquesne's athletics program has made positive strides in recent years - improved facilities, greater financial resources, increased fund raising, the recruitment and retention of accomplished coaching and administrative personnel, and improved performance on the playing field and in the classroom. The University has committed new resources to athletics, partnering with generous donors to invest significantly in the program over the past decade. These investments include:

  • Major improvements to the Palumbo Center - Duquesne's home for basketball and volleyball - including new coaching and administrative staff offices, recruiting suite, state-of-the-art video breakdown room, student-athlete-only strength and conditioning center, athletic training rooms, chair-back arena seating, custom Daktronics scoreboard, men's and women's basketball and volleyball locker rooms, and a new maple playing floor. Most recent enhancements include the overhaul of the auxiliary practice gym, and the addition of a new screening room and a new academic study center for men's and women's basketball.
  • Rooney Field - home of the Dukes for football, soccer and lacrosse - received an extensive upgrade in the summer of 2009 with the construction of permanent grandstand seating that replaced temporary bleachers. Permanent concession stands, new restrooms and a new artificial turf playing surface were also added. The renovation coincided with the football program's adoption of a scholarship model and move to the Northeast Conference in 2008. A second phase of improvements to Rooney Field was completed in the fall of 2011 with a major renovation of the home football locker room and football staff offices. New locker room facilities for men's and women's soccer, lacrosse and women's swimming were completed prior to the 2014-15 season.
  • The University has committed considerable financial resources to the athletics program in the form of increased operating budgets and scholarships across all sports, and the addition of full-time assistant coaches in six sports.
  • The 2013-14 season was the most successful in Duquesne Athletics history with women's volleyball and women's cross country winning Atlantic 10 championships. The volleyball team, which won both the regular season and postseason championship, earned just the second team NCAA tournament bid in school history. The football team won a share of the Northeast Conference title. In addition, women's indoor and outdoor track finished second in the A10. All but one team advanced to A10 championship play in 2013-14, with nine programs posting Top 5 finishes in the conference. 
  • Duquesne enjoys a strong partnership with the CONSOL Energy Center, the state-of-the-art home of the Pittsburgh Penguins that is directly across the street from the Duquesne campus. This partnership has enabled the men's basketball team to play selected home games at the facility, and led to Duquesne's selection as host for the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship second and third round games at the CONSOL Energy Center in 2012 and 2015. Duquesne has been selected to host these rounds again in 2018. 

Duquesne's 16 varsity athletics teams posted an average Academic Progress Rate (APR) of 977.2 according to the latest multi-year report released by the NCAA in May 2015, a reflection of the University's commitment to the scholar-athlete model. Duquesne's student-athletes have achieved a cumulative grade point average of better than 3.0 over the past decade, with over one-third of all student-athletes achieving a GPA of 3.5 or higher. The four-year graduation rate for Duquesne athletes is an exceptionally strong 92 percent.
