AlabamaState University Alabama State University is in the midst of a vital season of transformation. While holding true to its legacy of providing a quality education for its students, the University also is experiencing unprecedented growth, both physically and academically.

Because of the decree, the University has been transformed both physically and academically. Multimillion dollar academic and athletic buildings now grace the 172-acre campus, including new football, baseball and softball stadiums, as well as upgrades to existing facilities.

The Legacy

High-demand academic programs have been established and cutting-edge research is being conducted by ASU faculty and students. We now offer Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science, as well as master’s and education specialist degrees. The University also offers the Ph. D. in microbiology, the clinical doctorate in physical therapy, and the Ed.D. and the Ph.D. in educational leadership, policy and law. With a focus on a global initiative, the campus has a diverse student and faculty population while maintaining its proud heritage as a Historically Black College or University (HBCU).

Alabama State University evolved from the Lincoln Normal School that opened on Nov. 13, 1867, with 113 students, thanks to the courageous efforts of its founders, nine former slaves from Perry County, Ala., known affectionately as the Marion Nine. The Lincoln School incorporated on July 18, 1867. In 1868, the State Board of Education gave the school a new designation, and it became known as Lincoln Normal School. In December 1873, the state board accepted the transfer of title to the school after a legislative act was passed authorizing the state to fund a Normal School. George N. Card was named president. Thus, the predecessor of Alabama State University became the first state-supported educational institution for blacks. This began ASU’s rich history as a “Teachers’ College.”

Alabama State University charters more than 70 student organizations, including nine Greek organizations and 17 honors organizations. In addition to social, cultural and political groups, students have musical performance opportunities, such as the Mighty Marching Hornets and the University Choir, and departmental organizations for most majors. Intercollegiate athletic programs include baseball, basketball, tennis, track and field, volleyball, softball, golf, bowling and cross country. The ASU Hornets are members of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) and compete at the NCAA Division I level.

In 1887, the second president, William Burns Paterson, was instrumental in the institution’s move from Marion to Montgomery. In the decades that followed, Lincoln Normal School became a junior college and, in 1928, a full four-year institution. More name changes were on the horizon: In 1929, the institution became State Teachers College at Montgomery, Alabama State College for Negroes in 1948 and Alabama State College in 1954. In 1969, the State Board of Education, then the governing body of the University, approved a name change to Alabama State University.

The Future

ASU has its eye on the future while remaining true to its mission of being a student-centered institution that provides quality programs in undergraduate and graduate instruction, continuing education and research. The faculty, staff and administration of the University are committed to the pursuit of the institutional goal of preparing students to compete successfully in an increasingly global economy.

The Transformation

The University’s Vision 2020 Transformation initiative was launched when Dr. William H. Harris returned to the University in 2008.  During his first tenure (1994-2000), Harris was instrumental in the Knight v. State of Alabama remedial decree, which resulted in much of the tremendous growth that the University has experienced over the past 15 years.

ASU ADMINISTRATION Dr. William H. Harris Interim President

Harris returned to Alabama State University as president in 2008 with a bold new vision centered on advancing the institution’s Culture of Learning. He helped University leaders launch an initiative called Vision 2020: The Transformation of Alabama State University. During his second tenure, the University experienced dramatic growth both academically and physically. Harris retired from the University in September of 2012 and was named President Emeritus by the Board of Trustees.

Dr. William H. Harris has had a long and distinguished career in higher education. He is among a few academicians who have contributed to their fields of study and who have served the higher education community as the CEO and president for both public and private postsecondary institutions. After completing the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at Indiana University, Harris began his professional career at Indiana University as an assistant professor of history. He rose through the ranks to become professor of history and concomitantly served as associate dean of the Graduate School and director of the CIC Minorities Fellowships Program. He also was a Fulbright Professor and Visiting Professor of History at the University of Hamburg (1978-1979) in Germany. As one of the youngest college presidents ever appointed, Harris led Paine College during the period of 1982-1988. He subsequently led Texas Southern University (1988-1993) and later Alabama State University (1994-2000). He left retirement briefly in 2005-2006 to serve as interim president of Fort Valley State University and Texas College in 2008.

Harris has earned numerous awards and distinctions, including being named a Distinguished Son of Fitzgerald, Ga., his birthplace, one of 10 individuals so honored during the city’s Centennial Celebration; recipient (with his wife, Wanda) of a Trustees Special Leadership Award from the Paine College Board of Trustees; recipient of the Paine College Alumni Association Charles G. Gomillion Award; recipient of the honorary Doctor of Letters and Laws degree from Paine College and the Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Tuskegee University; recipient of the Trustees Special Service Award from Paine College; and recognition by Indiana University with the Distinguished Alumni Service Award, the highest honor an alumnus can receive from the university. Harris also is designated as one of the Fifty Most Influential Black Georgians. He is the author of two books: Keeping the Faith: A. Phillip Randolph, Milton P. Webster, and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, published in 1977 and reissued in 1991 by the University of Illinois Press; and The Harder We Run: Black Workers Since the Civil War, published in 1982 by Oxford University Press.

ladyhornets seasonoutlook Alabama State University is coming off a 7-9-2 season and an appearance in the SWAC Tournament where they lost to Prairie View in the quarterfinals. This season, head coach Jodie Smith and his coaching staff looks to contend for the division as well as SWAC Championship. Entering the 2013 campaign, ASU will have 19 players, including 13 returning players that have started. The team will be led by three talented forwards in junior Alexandria Cannon (Chattanooga, Tenn.), senior India Pleasant (Fontana, Calif.), and sophomore Anastasia McCleary (Queensland, Australia). Cannon, being the most decorated player, will be looked upon to continue to set the tone and lead the team. Also returning is junior forward Melinda Smith, who has also seen some playing time in the midfield position. The team should be very strong at the defender’s position with starting seniors Samantha Bruno (Hamilton, Ontario), Helma von Zadow (Pottsdam, Germany), Stephanie Howard (Wetumpka, Ala.), and sophomore Mariel Smith (Conyers, Ga.) all returning. They all should play a key role as the team continues to retool the lineup and move closer to opening day. Another returning junior is captain, Iita Pienimaki (Jyvaskyla, Finland). “She will play at the midfield position and has played defender during her career, so we will look for her to be versatile at times,” Smith stated. Sophomore Kaedi Walther (San Rafael, Calif.) is a returning starter at the midfield position for ASU this season. Also joining Walther will be sophomore Alena Salsberg (El Dorado, Calif.) and sophomore Alayna Smith (Conyers, Ga.). Both have added depth and speed to the position.

Junior Kylee Hathaway (Pomona, Calif.) will be at the goalkeeper’s position again this season. She is expected to continue do big things for the team. She will look to establish herself as one of the premier goalkeepers in the SWAC. 10

ladyhornets seasonoutlook finished in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament. ASU will open the season with a home game against Troy on Aug. 23, before hosting South Carolina State Sunday, Aug 25. ASU travels to Cookeville, Tenn. to face Tennessee Tech, Aug. 30. The Hornets will return home to compete against UTChattanooga to begin the month of September, before beginning a two-game road slate in Nashville, Tenn. at Lipscomb on the 6th and at Belmont on the 8th.

SCHEDULE: The 2013 schedule will feature a total of 19 matches, with 10 home and nine away being played.

The team will then return home to face UNCAshville on September 13 and host Presbyterian College on the 15. ASU will hit the road for a match against Jacksonville State on the 20 before returning home for a two-game home stand, beginning with USC-Beaufort on September 22.

“The schedule this season will definitely bring about a lot of good challenges for us,” Smith said. “We have a good mixture of conference and non-conference games; especially with our SWAC schedule having to go play our conference and instate rival Alabama A&M in the final regular season matchup.”

ASU will face Talladega College October 2, before opening conference play on the road in Lorman, Miss. against Alcorn State on Oct. 4. The Lady Hornets will travel north to face Mississippi Valley State in Itta Bena, Miss. on Oct. 6, before returning home to host Southern on Oct. 11 and face Jackson State on Oct. 13.

“Our out-of-conference schedule will have a mix of in-state and out-of-state teams, including teams from the Sun Belt Conference, Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference, Atlantic Sun, Southern Conference, Big South Conference, and the Ohio Valley Conference, so I think that we have a good slate for this season. Playing these games are going to set us up for a very strong, but challenging season.”

ASU will end its regular season slate on the road, facing Arkansas Pine-Bluff in Pine-Bluff, Ark. on Oct. 18, at Grambling State on Oct. 20, and round out conference play at in-state rival Alabama A&M on Oct. 25.

Smith has eleven letter winners, including nine starters, returning from last season’s squad which 11

headcoach Now entering his seventh season, Smith has positioned the Hornets soccer program as one of the top programs in the Southwestern Athletic Conference.

JODIE SMITH Head Coach Seventh Year LSU, 1985

Under Smith, 2012 was a breakout season for the emerging program. ASU won a program high seven games, highlighted by out-ofconference wins over UT-Chattanooga of the Southern Conference and Lipscomb University of the Atlantic Sun Conference. The two victories were the highest profile wins for the SWAC.

Smith’s ability to recruit and build a program was very evident with a total of five players earning post season honors including Alexandria Cannon being named College Sports Madness Player of the Year and First Team All-SWAC; Anastasia McCleary Freshman of the Year and First Team All-SWAC; and India Pleasant First Team All-SWAC. Smith’s teams also performed at a high level off the field as evidenced by an impressive six consecutive years being recognized by the National Soccer Coach Association of America (NSCAA) for winning the Team Academic Award with a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Entering his 19th year as a Head Coach with a career record of 114-144-10, Smith has had success with stops at Georgia State University and Mercer University. His 1997 squad at Georgia State was the most decorated in the Panther’s program history capturing the Trans-Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship, as well as a bid in the NCAA National Tournament, still the only ones for the Panthers. During his tenure with the Panthers, his players garnered TAAC Player of the Year, TAAC Tournament MVP, A-Sun Freshmen of the Year, NSCAA All-South and 14 All-TAAC and A-Sun honors along with 11 years of the NSCAA Team Academic Award. An active Coach among his coaching peers, Smith currently serves on the NSCAA National Rankings Committee and well as the NCAA Central Region Ranking committee, while also serving stints on the NCAA Southeast Ranking Committee and as a NCAA National Soccer Championship Site Official. A familiar figure in youth coaching circles as well, Smith coaches with the Capitol City Streaks, a Premier Youth Soccer Club here in Montgomery and is a member of the Alabama Olympic Development Program coaching staff, while also working with the Georgia ODP staff with residing there. Further, Smith is one of the directors of the Ralph Lundy Soccer Academy, one of the most well-known camps in the Southeast. He holds a USSF National License, NSCAA National Diploma and a USYSA Youth National Diploma. Smith and his wife, Tracy, live in Montgomery.

Among the highlights of Smith’s years at the helm of the program was the notching of his 100th career win. A 1-0 road victory over in state conference rival Alabama A&M, which also clinched a berth in the SWAC Tournament.

In 2012, Saunders played a huge role in ASU’s best regular season in program history. Her primary roles apart from the administrative side are working with the attacking players and recruiting. 2012 was a breakout season for the Lady Hornets, setting team and individual scoring records.

swac history

By the time the session concluded, they had founded an athletic league that went on to become one of the leading sports associations in the world of collegiate athletics, the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC).

The enter-exit cycle continued in 1961 when Texas College withdrew, followed by the admittance of Alcorn A&M in 1962. Wiley left in 1968, the same year Mississippi Valley State entered. Arkansas AM&N exited in 1970 and Alabama State entered in 1982. Arkansas-Pine Bluff (formerly Arkansas AM&N) rejoined the SWAC on July 1, 1997, regaining full-member status one year later. Alabama A&M became the conference’s 10th member when it became a full member in September 1999 after a one-year period as an affiliate SWAC member.

The Southwestern Athletic Conference’s current members include: Alabama A&M University (Huntsville, Ala.), Alabama State University (Montgomery, Ala.), Alcorn State University (Lorman, Miss.), Grambling State University (Grambling, La.), Jackson State University (Jackson, Miss.), Mississippi Valley State University (Itta Bena, Miss.), Prairie View A&M University (Prairie View, Texas), Southern University and A&M College (Baton Rouge, La.), Texas Southern University (Houston, Texas) and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (Pine Bluff, Ark.).

Today, the SWAC ranks among the elite in the nation in terms of alumni playing with professional sports teams, particularly in the sport of football. On the gridiron, the conference has been the biggest draw on the Division I-AA level of the NCAA, leading the nation in average home attendance for 19 of the 20 years the I-AA division has been in existence. In fact, in 1994, the SWAC fell just 40,000 fans short of becoming the first non-Division I-A conference to attract one million fans to its home games.

Former members of the SWAC include Bishop College (1920-56), Paul Quinn College (1920-29), Sam Houston College (1920-59), Texas College (1920-68), Wiley College (1920-68), Langston University (1931-57) and Arkansas AM&N (1936-70).

The SWAC’s ledger of alumni reads like a who’s who in college sports listings. Representing the SWAC in pro halls of fame are football stars Lem Barney (Jackson State/Detroit Lions), Mel Blount (Southern University/Pittsburgh Steelers), Willie Brown (Grambling State/Oakland Raiders), Buck Buchanan (Grambling State/Kansas City Chiefs), Willie Davis (Grambling State/Cleveland Browns and Green Bay Packers), Ken Houston (Prairie View A&M/Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins), David “Deacon” Jones (Mississippi Valley/Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins), Walter Payton (Jackson State/Chicago Bears), Jackie Slater (Jackson State/Los Angeles and St. Louis Rams) and Charlie Joiner (Grambling State/Houston Oilers, Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers); baseball stars Lou Brock (Southern University/St. Louis Cardinals) and Bill Foster (Alcorn State/Negro Leagues), and basketball star Willis Reed (Grambling State/New York Knicks).

In 1920, eight men representing six colleges from the state of Texas met in Houston to discuss collegiate athletics and the many challenges facing their respective institutions.

The founding fathers of the original “Super Six” were C.H. Fuller of Bishop College; Red Randolph and C.H. Patterson of Paul Quinn College; E.G. Evans, H.J. Evans and H.J. Starns of Prairie View A&M; D.C. Fuller of Texas College; and G. Whitte Jordan of Wiley College. Paul Quinn became the first of the original members to withdraw from the league in 1929. When Langston University of Oklahoma was admitted into the conference two years later, it began the migration of state-supported institutions into the SWAC. Southern University entered the ranks in 1934, followed by Arkansas AM&N in 1936 and Texas Southern in 1954.

Current championship competition offered by the SWAC includes men’s baseball, basketball, cross-country, football, golf, indoor track, outdoor track and field and tennis. Women’s competition is offered in basketball, bowling, cross-country, golf, indoor track, outdoor track and field, soccer, tennis and volleyball.

Rapid growth in enrollment of the state-supported schools made it difficult for the church-supported schools to finance their athletics programs. One by one they fell victim to the growing prowess of the tax-supported colleges. Bishop withdrew from the conference in 1956, Langston in 1957 and Sam Houston in 1959, one year after the admittance of two more state-supported schools – Grambling College and Jackson College.

ncaa compliance remember: Ask before you act. The Alabama State University Athletic Department, in conjunction with the ASU Office of Compliance office, strives for honor and dignity of fair play and the highest standards associated with intercollegiate athletics programs. “Representatives of Athletics Interests,” which include alumni, boosters and friends of Alabama State University, all have a key role in maintaining our standards under the guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). NCAA rules and regulations for “Representatives of Athletics Interests” Relationships are easily formed with ASU student-athletes, as fans watch and cheer them on in their competitions. Building these types of relationships is not only exciting for the fans, but also important in the lives of the student-athletes. In an effort to ensure the eligibility of every student athlete is not harmed, ASU’s Compliance Office shares these guidelines for what can and cannot be provided to our student-athletes: DOs • Provide an occasional meal in your home to a student-athlete or an entire team. You also may provide transportation to your home for the occasional meal. • Provide summer employment to a student-athlete, provided the athlete is paid the going rate and only for work actually performed. DON’Ts (among other things) • Give a gift of equipment or clothing • Arrange employment for a prospect’s relatives • Give cash or co-sign on loans • Provide free or reduced-cost housing • Provide free or reduced-cost services, rentals or purchases of any type • Provide use of an automobile • Provide or arrange any special discounts, credits or special payment arrangements (i.e. airline tickets, restaurant meals, cash) • Provide the parents, family or friends of a student-athlete with free admission to an Alabama State University or booster club recognition banquet • Provide tickets to an athletics, institutional or community event Intro to NCAA Compliance: Helpful Facts ONLY coaches and athletic department staff members are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. • Alumni, friends and “other representatives of athletics interest” (boosters) who are not employed by the University are not permitted to contact a prospect or members of the prospect’s family by letter, telephone or in person

for the purpose of soliciting their participation in the athletic program. Alabama State faculty members are allowed to have contact with prospects, but only while they are on campus during unofficial or official visits. A student-athlete becomes a prospect... • When the student-athlete begins ninth-grade classes. Before the ninth grade, a student-athlete becomes a prospect if a college provides any financial aid or other benefits to the student-athlete (or the athlete’s relatives or friends) that the college does not provide to all prospective students. • A student-athlete is considered a “recruited” prospect at a particular college if any coach or representative of the school’s athletics interest (booster or representative) approaches a student-athlete or any family member about enrolling and participating in athletics at that college. Activities by coaches or boosters that cause a student-athlete to become a recruited prospect are: - Providing the student-athlete with an official visit - Placing more than one telephone call to the student-athlete or any other family member - Visiting the student-athlete or any other family member anywhere other than on the college’s campus Alabama State University’s Athletics Compliance Office monitors and verifies compliance with all NCAA, SWAC and University requirements. The office educates not only the athletics staff, administration and student-athletes, but also University faculty, staff and administration, as well as other individuals and entities with athletic interests. ASU is committed and compelled to uphold the principle of institutional control in the operation of its athletics department in a way that is consistent with the rules and regulations of the NCAA, SWAC and University. Everyone involved with Alabama State athletics, both inside and outside the University, has a role and responsibility to operate with accountability and integrity when it comes to compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. Communication is the key when it comes to understanding how each person fits within the structure of the NCAA’s rules and regulations. Any questions regarding NCAA rules and regulations, especially those dealing with prospects and student-athletes, should be directed to the ASU Office of Compliance by calling 334-229-4519. The ASU athletic program needs your help and support, so please cooperate to ensure success for the Hornets, on and off the field. The information on this page was prepared by the Alabama State University Athletics Compliance Office and is presented to you as a guide to assist you with any questions you may have. There are many more NCAA rules and regulations that are not contained here. If you are ever unsure regarding your involvement with our prospects or current student-athletes, please contact the ASU Compliance Office.
