Head Coach

Don Maines Head Coach• •Fifth Season East Stroudsburg, 1982

Don Maines returns for his fifth season as head coach at Long Island University. Coming off a difficult 2009 campaign, he will welcome a talented group of newcomers into the fold for 2010. Faced with the task of rebounding from a tough season, Maines has his squad primed to improve on its eighth-place finish in the Northeast Conference last season. Maines came to Long Island from Drexel, taking over for Frank Giannone, the Blackbirds’ all-time winningest coach. Maines guided the Dragons’ program for 14 seasons, registering 270 victories en route to having the Philadelphia school’s all-time highest winning percentage. Drexel had posted just two winning seasons prior to his arrival, but Maines quickly turned the Dragons into contenders. He led Drexel to the America East championship game three times: in 1993, 1995 and 1996. Maines also guided the Dragons to a school-record 32 wins during the 1995 season. During his time at Drexel, Maines coached three freshman All-

Americans, four All-Americans and five professional baseball players. He left Drexel when the school discontinued baseball as a varsity sport following the 2003 season. Maines began his coaching career in 1987 as an assistant at his alma mater, East Stroudsburg. He also served as an assistant coach at Princeton for the 1989 season, supervising its recruiting efforts. During the 2008 campaign, Maines captured his 300th career win with an 11-7 victory at Temple on March 15. At season’s end, he saw three of his players garner All-NEC First Team honors: Frank DiMasi, Danny Etkin, and James Jones. It was the first time three Blackbirds earned first team honors since 1998. Last season, Maines saw Jones earn an All-NEC First Team nod for the second time. Jones was later selected in the fourth round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. The Seattle Mariners took Jones with the 113th overall pick, making him the highest draft selection in the history of Long Island and the NEC. The North Plainfield, N.J., native graduated from East Stroudsburg in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science degree in health and physical education. Maines earned a master’s in education from East Stroudsburg in 1988.

In Review Northeast Conference Embarking upon its 29th season, the Northeast Conference and its member institutions look forward to a new era of growth and opportunity in 2009-10. Driven by a new strategic plan, the NEC will strive to be recognized as an NCAA Division I leader for student-athlete achievement, integrity, competitiveness and national engagement. The NEC can trace its roots back to 1981, when the league was first established as the men’s basketball-only ECAC-Metro Conference. A single-sport entity at its inception, even the league’s most ardent supporters during its formative years could not have envisioned a transformation into a burgeoning 12-member, 22-sport conference. The remarkable success story of the conference began to unfold in 1985, when the league began sponsoring additional sports. Three years later, a change of name was in order and the Northeast Conference as we know it today was born. With membership and sport sponsorship continuing to grow over the next decade and beyond, the NEC now enjoys qualification or play-in access to 13 different NCAA Championships (baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, field hockey, men’s and women’s golf, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and women’s volleyball). Though the NEC has featured various looks since its inception,

charter members Fairleigh Dickinson, Long Island, Robert Morris, St. Francis (N.Y.), Saint Francis (Pa.) and Wagner remain part of the current 12-school alignment. They are joined by Monmouth (admitted in 1985), Mount St. Mary’s (1989), Central Connecticut State (1997), Quinnipiac (1998) and Sacred Heart (1999). NEC expansion, which will culminate in 2012 with the addition of Bryant University as the league’s 12th member, will give the league a six-state geographic footprint with access to such major media markets as New York City, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Hartford and Providence. With the addition of women’s bowling last fall, NEC member institutions now compete in 22 championship sports: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, women’s bowling men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming, men’s and women’s tennis, and women’s volleyball. Men’s lacrosse will become the league’s 23rd sport by the 2011 season. Over the last five years, the NEC has televised nearly 150 events, as the league’s coverage area expanded to 40 million homes plus coverage internationally. The NEC also webstreamed the women’s basketball, softball and baseball tournaments to much acclaim, and plans to expand webstream offerings in 2009-10.

University Administration

Dr. David Steinberg President Long Island University

Dr. David Steinberg, the ninth president of Long Island University, was appointed April 1, 1985. During his tenure, the University has experienced a renaissance becoming one of the largest and most comprehensive private universities in the United States. Under his leadership, the University’s endowment has increased nearly tenfold from $4.8 million to over $80 million, and its enrollment has risen from 19,000 to over 28,500. He has spearheaded a capital improvement plan, which has led to $400 million in investments in new construction and major renovations, resulting in vast improvements in the quality of study and life on each of the University’s campuses, especially, the C.W. Post and Brooklyn Campuses. New doctoral programs have been added and operating reserves have been created and increased. Born in New York City, Dr. Steinberg, is the son of the late Rabbi Milton Steinberg of Manhattan’s Park Avenue Synagogue. He was educated at Phillips Academy at Andover, Malvern College in England, and Harvard College, from which he graduated magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

Gale Stevens Haynes Provost Long Island University Brooklyn Campus

“I am a big dreamer,” says Gale Stevens Haynes, Provost of Long Island University’s Brooklyn Campus and an exemplary educator, lawyer and role model. “If you don’t dream, nothing ever changes.”

In 2006, under the Provost’s leadership, the Campus completed the biggest building project in its history: the $45 million Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center. With state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facilities for students and other members of the Campus, the WRAC also features an outstanding, 2,500seat venue, open to the public for athletic and civic events. Its Harriet Rothkopf Heilbrunn ’32 Academic Nursing Center offers an extensive array of free preventive health services as well as a home for Brooklyn’s first Lupus outreach and education office, all in service to the entire community. A wider array of wellness services, including special cluster of intervention programs addressing asthma and lead poisoning in children, are planned to begin in 2007. In recent months, the Provost also has overseen a dramatic re-landscaping that has nearly tripled the green space for the central campus, with native plants and amenities that create a serene environment and enhance the “college experience” on this urban campus. Involved in higher education for three decades, Provost Haynes began her association with the Brooklyn Campus as a student, earning a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in counseling. She started her career as director of the Higher Education Opportunity Program. Upon completing her law degree at St. John’s University in 1983, she became Long Island University’s legal counsel before assuming the position of Provost in 1989. A Queens, N.Y., native, Provost Haynes grew up with a love of books and the spoken word, which she attributes to her West Indian heritage. She has passed on that love of learning to her three daughters – a doctor, a lawyer and an educator – whom she raised as a divorced single parent. “Parenting is a training ground for being a good CEO,” she maintains. Acting on her belief that a sound education is the key to realizing one’s dreams, Provost Haynes is dedicated to creating an urban campus whose varied pathways help students to realize theirs.

As head of a doctoral-granting institution, Provost Haynes has achieved many of her dreams both as an educator and a parent. Today, she oversees one of the most diverse campuses in the country, with more than 11,000 students, managing an annual budget of over $160 million. Provost Haynes has led her institution through a remarkable renaissance: doubling student enrollment, creating new facilities, diversifying faculty, forging links with the community and transforming the Campus into a vibrant urban academic center. One of the Provost’s visions – a modern performing arts center for the students and the community – became a reality in 2005. The centerpiece of the new complex is the wood-paneled, 320-seat Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts, where cutting-edge and traditional dance, music and theater performances regularly draw standing-room-only crowds from the Campus and the surrounding region.

Athletics Administration

John Suarez Director of Athletics

John Suarez enters his 13th year as director of athletics at Long Island University, where he has overseen a dramatic growth of the school’s athletic department. During his tenure, Suarez has witnessed a sensational rise in the Blackbirds’ on-field success with 27 Northeast Conference championships and 22 NEC Coach of the Year awards. Under his guidance, Long Island captured its first-ever NEC Women’s Commissioner’s Cup in 2006 and posted its best overall finish in over 20 years with a third-place standing in 2008-09. Academic success has also been a priority in Suarez’s tenure. The department posted its highest cumulative grade-point average in over 20 years of record keeping with a 3.14 mark following the 2008-09 school year. It was the eighth consecutive year that the department’s cumulative GPA was above 3.0. In addition, LIU has been cited with two National Graduation Awards sponsored by USA Today and has had its programs regularly recognized by the NCAA for its Academic Progress Rate scores. Suarez has also spearheaded the department as it has made major improvements to its facilties. The 2006 opening of the Wellness, Recreation and Athletic Center culminated a decade of facility improvement at the Brooklyn Campus. The $45 million facility houses as 2,500-seat arena, an NCAA regulation-size swimming pool and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The WRAC also features a wellness center that is geared toward a growing Brooklyn community. The Wellness Center came on the heels of other improvements that included the addition of lights to LIU Field in 1999, FieldTurf in 2001 and bleachers for softball and baseball in 2003. Suarez has also overseen upgrades to the weight room, locker rooms and scoreboards. Suarez’s work is not done, as there are plans to further upgrade to the Blackbirds’ facilities, including an extensive redesign of LIU Field and the addition of a bubble atop the Wellness Center, covering the track and tennis courts. With a keen eye toward the future, Suarez has been mindful of LIU’s past. He helped spearhead the creation of the LIU Athletics Hall of Fame in 2000 with 11 inaugural members, as well as the reestablishment of the Blackbird Club in 2002. Suarez has also continued to make his presence felt outside the downtown Brooklyn campus. He is currently on the national board of officers for the NCAA Division I-AAA Athletics Directors Association. He previously served on the NCAA Management Council from 2003-06 and was a member of the Division I Budget Committee from 2004-06. Prior to that, Suarez was on the NCAA Championship Cabinet from 2000-03 and served as chair of the NEC Athletic Directors Committee from 2000-02.
