FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Shalini Shanker, Assistant Athletics Director for Compliance, was chosen to attend the 2012 NCAA Leadership Institute, a program for ethnic minority leaders, in Chapel Hill, N.C., July 28 through August 3.

Each year the institute provides the opportunity for 50 ethnic minority males and females to strategically map and plan their careers through the exploration of the intercollegiate athletics community.  

The select group of attendees was required to apply to become a member of the institute's Class of 2012.  Steve McDonnell, Assistant Athletics Director for Academic Services, nominated Shanker for the position. 

"It is quite a prestigious program to be accepted into," McDonnell said.  "That indicates that Shalini is doing an outstanding job at being a leader in NCAA compliance and in the industry, overall."

During her week in North Carolina, Shanker attended presentations, workshops and professional development courses.  She also had the opportunity to network with minority leaders across the nation in an effort to continue the advancement of ethnic leadership in intercollegiate athletics.

"It was a life-changing experience," Shanker said.  "We became a family over the course of the week and it was wonderful to be in the company of such inspiring individuals."

In her fourth year with Colorado State Athletics, Shanker works with every area of the department and oversees CSU's compliance with NCAA and Mountain West rules and regulations.  She holds two degrees from the University of Kansas and is licensed to practice law in the Federal District Court in the District of Kansas and in the state of Kansas.  She also works with the Minority Opportunity Athletic Association, the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators and the National Association for Athletics Compliance.
