Christine Susemihl is Colorado State's Senior Associate Athletics Director for Internal Operations and the department's Senior Woman Administrator (SWA).
Susemihl oversees academic student services, compliance, business operations, the training room, the weight room and 13 of the department's 16 intercollegiate sports.
In recognition of her administrative contributions to the athletics department, she was inducted into the CSU Sports Hall of Honor in 2008.
She is a certified peer-reviewer for the NCAA Division I Athletics Certification Program and served two elected terms as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Association for Athletics Compliance (NAAC). She also is a member of the Joint Council of the Mountain West.
Susemihl serves as the department's equal employment opportunity coordinator and is a member of both the university's Operations Team for Diversity, and Grievance Panel. She has served two terms as a university mediation officer and two terms as a member of the Administrative Professional Council. She also serves on the Campus Community Coalition.
Susemihl joined the staff in 1973. In addition to a myriad of administrative responsibilities over the years, she served as the school's interim Director of Athletics during searches that led to Mark Driscoll's appointment in August of 2003 and Paul Kowalczyk's appointment in May of 2006.
When then-President Albert C. Yates initially named her to this position in 2003, she became the first woman in university history to hold the title of Director of Athletics. She also instituted the department's first-ever NCAA compliance program and headed CSU's day-to-day compliance efforts from 1993 until accepting her internal operations duties in 2007.
After attending The Colorado College and Colorado State University, Susemihl received a degree in business administration from Regis University. A native of Grand Junction, Colo., she has lived in Fort Collins since 1970.
