Shawn Eichorst's April Connecting on Campus Column

By Randy York, The N-Sider

If you ever wonder what the core traits are to be a successful NCAA Division I director of athletics, you should take the time to read Shawn Eichorst's April Connecting on Campus column published Friday.

Why? Because it will give you a motivational glimpse into Eichorst's fascinating life as the leader of Nebraska Athletics. Every month, he shares Husker highlights with donors, constituents and fans, using a communication style that helps Big Red followers see the big picture and stay on top of what's important.

Like student-athletes, athletic directors focus on priorities that include continuous improvement, academics, service, character, judgement, communication, culture, passion, values and strategy.

Read this month's multifaceted column and you will see how Eichorst keeps everything in perspective. He is meticulous in the way he honors the Nebraska student-athlete experience and the way he acknowledges major accomplishments and stellar performances.

Eichorst embraces multiple priorities, whether he co-chairs the NCAA Division I Oversight Committee for football legislation, salutes 300 student-athletes in a Night at the Lied Center or hosts 75 staff members, letterwinners and student-athletes who are scheduled to graduate in May or next August.

Please take the time to read Eichorst's column, plus his sound bites, quick hits and thumbs up kudos. In his column, accolades are very meaningful and if you have never taken the time to read Connecting on Campus, now is a good time to start.
