Provost Ralph Hexter has been quoted as saying he wants to complete the hiring of an Athletic Director.
He was the President of Hampshire College in Amherst, MA, which plays in the Yankee Small College Conference (YSCC).
- I can't find the division, I'm guessing D III
- Enrollment - 1400
- Sports - 6
- Acceptance rate - 71%
So far I can't find anything regarding athletics. Degree from Harvard, schooled in the classics. He and his husband Manfred enjoy attending the opera in San Francisco, and riding horses on the weekends. His guilty pleasure is playing Candy Crush. Founding member of an LGBTQ group, and looks up to an administrator from the University of Colorado at Boulder who was openly gay as a role model. He also spent time at Yale and Berkeley.
Maybe he had some experience with athletics at a college before Hampshire.
