* University of Wyoming Athletics media relations release
LARAMIE -- Scott Chamberlin, a professor in the University of Wyoming’s College of Education, will serve as UW’s next NCAA faculty athletics representative (FAR).
The FAR represents the institution and its faculty in relationships with the NCAA and the Mountain West Conference. Internally, the representative serves as the liaison for student-athlete NCAA eligibility and academic success, as well as NCAA rules compliance -- coordinating between the Office of the President, the faculty community and the Department of Athletics. The representative also is a resource to student-athletes on all academic and student welfare issues.
Chamberlin succeeds Alyson Hagy, a professor in the Department of Visual and Literary Arts, who has held the position for 15 years.
“We express our deepest appreciation for Alyson’s dedicated service for so many years,” UW President Ed Seidel said. “And I’m delighted that Scott has agreed to accept this appointment, which is so important to our success as an NCAA Division 1 institution.”
Chamberlin, a professor of elementary and early childhood education, teaches math and science methods for elementary pre-service teachers and mathematics seminars at UW. He has been a member of UW’s faculty since 2003.
Chamberlin received a Ph.D. from Purdue University, where he also did his undergraduate work, and a master’s degree from the University of Utah.
“I am honored to be selected for this responsibility and for the opportunity to represent the University of Wyoming, its student-athletes, the faculty and the Department of Athletics,” Chamberlin says. “In competition and in the classroom, University of Wyoming student-athletes are perpetually among the best in the conference.”
