Tucker Center releases report on hiring and retention practices for women collegiate coaches

The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport has released a first-of-its-kind report, “Athletic Administration Best Practices of Recruitment, Hiring, and Retention of Female Collegiate Coaches.” Produced with support from the NCAA Office of Inclusion, the report is based on interviews with athletic directors at NCAA schools with positive track records of recruiting, hiring, and retaining female head coaches and provides a roadmap for athletic directors looking for tangible strategies to improve the representation of women on their coaching staff. The report was authored by Dr. Nicole M. LaVoi, co-director of the Tucker Center.
