Samuelson Leaving Susquehanna for the Little East Conference

Selinsgrove, Pa. – Susquehanna University President Jonathan D. Green announced Friday morning the resignation of Director of Athletics Pam Samuelson after 16 years of service on the Selinsgrove campus. Samuelson's last day at Susquehanna will be June 27.

The Lincoln, Neb., native is staying in Division III athletics as she will become the eighth commissioner of the Little East Conference (LEC), starting July 22. The LEC was formed in 1986 when six public institutions gathered to create a single sport athletic conference and has expanded into what is now New England's premier athletic conference for public institutions in NCAA Division III, featuring 19 championship sports.
 
"Pam has been a highly effective leader during her tenure at Susquehanna, responsible for all aspects of our NCAA Division III program of 23 varsity sports, as well as club sports, intramurals, and recreation programs," Green said. "She has elevated Susquehanna athletics while ably navigating through periods of change."
 
While at Susquehanna, Samuelson managed a multi-million-dollar budget and a staff that consists of 24 full-time and 45 part-time employees while guiding the program through significant, program-wide advancements.
 
"I am very grateful for the opportunity given by Presidents Jay Lemons and Jonathan Green to serve as the Director of Athletics at SU for the past 16 years. While I am excited about my new role with the Little East Conference, SU is a special place and leaving is somewhat bittersweet," Samuelson stated.
 
Under her leadership, Susquehanna was a founding member of the Landmark Conference in 2007 and underwent a major rebranding initiative that resulted in a new nickname and brand identity being adopted in 2016. Samuelson served as Landmark Conference Chairperson from 2012-14, and saw Susquehanna capture four Landmark President's Trophy titles as the conference's top athletics program.
 
Off the field, she directed the creation of the department's mission and vision statements, the SU Intern program, which led to dramatic increases in applications and enrolled student-athletes, and SU FACT (Female Athlete Connection Team), a program that connects female alumnae with current student-athletes.
 
In addition to her day-to-day activities, Samuelson served on a variety of institutional committees, including the Presidential Task Force for Diversity and Inclusion and the Task Force on the Freeh Report. She was also a member of search committees for the positions of Vice President for Student Life and Chief Diversity Officer. Her own efforts to increase diversity within the athletic department saw an increase from one to nine staff members of color.
 
Samuelson said, "It has been a privilege to work with so many talented and professional coaches, staff and faculty throughout my 16 years. I am proud of the work that our coaches and support staff have done to provide a quality experience for our student-athletes, and I am just grateful to have been a part of it."
 
Information about the national search for Susquehanna's next director of athletics and interim plans will be forthcoming next week from Vice President of Student Life Susan Lantz.
