A-STATE TENNIS Academics

The Arkansas State University Athletics Department announced the fourth largest single donation in its history, a $400,000 gift from Charles Luter that was used to enhance the athletics’ academic facility, at a press conference held at the newly named Charles Luter Family Academic Success Center in September of 2008. The Academic Success Center serves as a foundation for structure, discipline and organization for the education of all A-State student-athletes. The facility, coupled with innovative programs and equipment, currently houses the academic support staff, tutors, computer labs, a resource room, study areas, tutorial rooms, small group study centers, a large conference room, the compliance office and spring sports coaching offices. Among the most recent and noticeable modifications to the Charles Luter Family Academic Success Center is a new foyer housed in a brick and rock exterior that, along with new landscaping, gives the entrance to the builing a modern look and creates a stronger image. The actual foyer has a large Red Wolves logo embedded in a terrazzo flooring that greets visitors as they enter the building. A receptionist office now also connects to the lobby area, which holds all-new furniture and a plaque recognizing Charles and his wife, Kay. A restructuring of the academic resource center, now known as Dawson’s Den, has occurred, including a wallwrap celebrating academic success that is clearly visible for student-athletes working in the computer lab. Additionally, tutorial rooms and computerwork stations have been upgraded in this area, which also displays pictures of the most recent A-State graduates. The names of the latest members of the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll are also showcased in Dawson’s Den. The area is named after Scott and Kay Dawson, longtime supporters of Red Wolves’ athletics.

Red Wolves Leadership Academy

It is well-known that collegiate athletics departments across the country place a common emphasis on graduation, but Arkansas State has taken it a step further by already fulfilling a bold promise of 100 percent job placement for all its graduating student-athletes. A-State has met its job-placement goal through its newly-developed Red Wolves Leadership Academy, which continues to strengthen with a new study abroad component added to foster global awareness which is often cited by employers as a positive attribute they seek This past summer, Arkansas State student-athletes took part in the first study abroad program offered by any university and their athletics department in the nation. The program goes handin-hand with the Red Wolves Leadership Academy, designed with the sole purpose to obtain 100 percent job placement for ALL student-athletes upon graduation. The Red Wolves took a ground-breaking step by sending the group of student-athletes to London on a faculty-led academic program. For A-State Director of Athletics Terry Mohajir, this is just one of the many ways it all comes back to providing the Red Wolves with the most comprehensive experiences possible to be successful in life. According to a recent CNN article (2014), titled “Studying abroad could give you an edge in the job Current football student-athlete Charlesmarket,” only one percent of U.S. college students manage to study abroad. The author can now count ton Girley and Director of Athletics Terry these and future Red Wolves among that one percent. Mohajir embrace during the 2015 Arkansas Research conducted by UC Merced backs up what Mohajir, the A-State Athletics Department, and State Spring Commencement. A-State Chancellor Dr. Tim Hudson, who has led hundreds of such programs, believes – adding the study abroad component to the Red Wolves Leadership Academy puts its student-athletes among the most desirable employees in the nation coming out of college and helps create global citizens. The UC Merced research also showed that 97 percent of study abroad students found employment within 12 months of graduation, while only 49 percent of college graduates found employment in the same period. Additionally, statistics revealed study abroad students had a 25 percent higher starting salary than those college graduates who did not study abroad. Graduate school also falls under the all-encompassing umbrella provided by the Red Wolves Leadership Academy and is included in its goal of 100 percent job placement since it has a significant impact on future employment. According to IES Abroad research (“Recent Graduates Survey: The Impact of Studying Abroad on Recent College Graduates’ Careers”, 2012), 90 percent of alumni who were accepted into one of their top two choices for graduate or professional school studied abroad. Like Mohajir and Dr. Hudson, Dr. DeeDee Hudson, Director of the Office of Study Abroad at A-State, and Dr. Osa Amienyi, Chair of the Department of Media at Arkansas State University, were a part of the study abroad vision and instrumental in bringing it to fruition.

Jonesboro, home of Arkansas State University, weighs in as the largest city in Northeast Arkansas. As a matter of fact, if you form a triangle by connecting Little Rock, St. Louis and Memphis, Jonesboro stands out as the largest metropolitan city in what amounts to a 17,000 square mile triangular area. Jonesboro is a great city of over 70,000, and is always ready to welcome incoming A-State students from the moment they arrive in town. The booming community has matured over the past half century into a regional center for cultural, educational, industrial, commercial, agricultural, communication, transportation, recreational and medical interests. It contains almost every convenience of a big city and every comfort of a small town. The community is alive with cultural events such as the art exhibitions, theatrical and musical productions, not only on campus but in the city itself through

the Jonesboro Fine Arts Council, NEA Foundation of Arts, the Forum and the Northeast Arkansas Symphony. Jonesboro is also the medical hub of northeast Arkansas and southeast Missouri, with two major hospitals and countless medical professionals. The city is also a shopping mecca, offering a modern business district as well as quaint downtown antique shops and restaurants.

A-STATE TENNIS Dr. Kelly Damphousse, A-State Chancellor

Kelly Damphousse became Chancellor of Arkansas State University on July 1, 2017, thanks to a personal email. An academic administrator at the University of Oklahoma since 2004, Damphousse (DAM-fiss) was serving as the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He and his wife Beth were the family in residence at OU’s freshman Headington Hall. In addition to enjoying teaching “Introduction to Sociology” to 700 first-year students each year, he was the Sooners’ Big 12/NCAA Faculty Athletic Representative. Then, he got that email. The last person to say so, Damphousse over the years had become a highly sought-after, but “thanks, not interested,” recruit of numerous president or chancellor searches. He’d seen his share of head-hunter pitches. But on that day, there was a personal message from the President of the Arkansas State University System. Chuck Welch explained how he was convinced Kelly Damphousse was the man for the job at A-State. A personal touch with students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the Norman community was Damphousse’s hallmark. His emphasis on placing students first became apparent during his campus visit to A-State in May 2017. The A-State Staff Senate heard the message and made “Every Red Wolf Counts” t-shirts that welcomed him and Beth when they were introduced later that month. His self-effacing humor and a lifetime spent relating to individuals regardless of the job led him to Jonesboro to become the third permanently appointed Chancellor of Arkansas State, the sixth to hold the title since it was instituted in 2006. Damphousse joins the line of successors to the university’s founding leader, V. C. Kays, from 1909 as the 13th chief executive of the institution. Raised in a small fishing village in northern Canada, Damphousse attended Lethbridge Community College where he earned an associate’s degree in law enforcement in 1982. A failed professional hockey tryout foiled one of his two early life ambitions, a career as a goalie in the NHL. His degree was the starting point for his other goal: becoming a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer. As he likes to say, three years in prison at

the Alberta Correctional Service where he served as a correctional officer refocused his dream of becoming a Mountie. Heading south, Damphousse enrolled at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, where his life was changed forever. Along with completing his bachelor’s in criminal justice, specializing in law enforcement and police science in 1987, he met Beth Smith, a College Station native who, in Kelly’s words, “neither wanted to marry a cop or a Canadian.” After a brief stint as a security manager for Macy’s in Atlanta and New Orleans, he returned to graduate school at Texas A&M University where he discovered Satanism. Actually, it was his thesis on the etiology of youthful Satanism that earned him his master’s in sociology in 1991. After completing his master’s degree, he progressed into drug use at A&M, completing his doctorate under Howard Kaplan, the director of the laboratory for the Studies of Social Deviance, and examined in his dissertation the long-term consequences of using drugs. He began his university career as an assistant professor in the Department of Justice Sciences at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1994, and then returned to his alma mater of Sam Houston State one year later as an assistant professor in the College of Criminal Justice. Damphousse moved to OU in 1997 as member of the Department of Sociology, where he directed several research projects, most notably the “American Terrorism Study” with Brent Smith of the University of Arkansas. He also worked on the Arrestee Drug Abuse Monitoring project in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, and the first-ever field test of voice-stress analysis deception detection software. Damphousse was the principal investigator or co-principal investigator on 42 projects at Oklahoma and Sam Houston State. The co-author with Smith and Jeffrey Gruenewald of the forthcoming 2018 book, Patterns of American Terrorism, Damphousse also served as the co-editor of Social Science Quarterly, volumes 92 through 97. He has authored or co-authored 26 peer-reviewed articles in scholarly publications, 31 book chapters and 20 peer-reviewed technical reports. Becoming associate dean in 2004, he was appointed the interim dean of CAS at Oklahoma in 2013. Damphousse was made the permanent dean in 2014. As the leader of OU’s largest and oldest college, Damphousse led the first college-wide strategic planning exercise as well as assisting faculty and staff in the raising of more than $30 million in private giving. He and Beth have two daughters who are both graduates of Oklahoma. Kayleigh, a 2014 sociology graduate, earned a master’s degree at Kansas, and is now the assistant director for retention and persistence at the University of Florida. Kristen, a 2016 biology graduate, is at Emory University working on her master’s degree in public health. The Damphousses are also the proud parents of Maple Leif, a standard poodle and lab mix, who serves as the First Dog of A-State and tweets at @MapleLeifDamp.

A-STATE TENNIS Terry Mohajir, Director of Athletics

Terry Mohajir became the 11th Director of Athletics in A-State history on September 19, 2012, and since that time the Red Wolves have enjoyed unprecedented overall success academically, competitively and financially. Since being named director of athletics, Mohajir (pronounced MO-HODGE-ER) has adopted an “ALWAYS RISING” slogan as an expansion on the popular “RED WOLVES RISING” campaign. With that theme in mind, the Arkansas State alumnus has instituted sweeping changes, created new policies, produced record-breaking fundraising totals, overseen significant facility upgrades, almost tripled the athletics department budget and implemented creative philosophies that have put the Red Wolves on course to strengthen their national brand. During his watch, the Red Wolves have accomplished numerous firsts in both academics and athletics accomplishments, but the Red Wolves’ passionate and energetic leader continues to reinforce his belief that “our accomplishments of today become our expectations of tomorrow.” A-State has claimed 13 conference championships under Mohajir, including four Sun Belt football titles (2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016) and league crowns in volleyball (2015), men’s indoor (2015) and outdoor (2016) track and field, women’s bowling (2016), women’s basketball (2014 and 2016), women’s indoor (2013) and outdoor (2015) track and field and women’s cross country (2014). Arkansas State had its first female student-athlete ever win an individual national championship and its women’s athletics program claimed its highest finish all-time in the Capital One Cup standings, earning two prestigious “Top50” awards for ranking No. 44 among all NCAA Division I programs during 2013-14 and No. 45 in 2015-16. The No. 44 ranking remains the highest ever by a Sun Belt Conference women’s program. The 2013-14 athletics year also saw A-State enjoy its

38

highest ever finish in the Learfield Sports Director’s Cup standings, ranking No. 1 in the Sun Belt Conference and No. 83 in the nation among 297 schools. The Red Wolves’ finish not only set a school record, it topped the program’s previous high of No. 134 set in 1999-2000 by 51 places. A-State posted its second highest finish ever in the standings in 2015-16, and, most recently, again led the Sun Belt Conference in 2016-17. During Mohajir’s tenure, A-State has won four football conference championships with three different head coaches, including Gus Malzahn, Bryan Harsin and Blake Anderson. His hires have been heralded by the national media as some of the best in the country. Mohajir has responded well with coaching transitions. Carrying out one of his first major acts as athletics director, he appointed an interim head football coach and kept the entire assistant coaching staff in place for the 2013 GoDaddy.com Bowl. The Red Wolves went on to claim their first bowl victory since 1970 and their first win over a top-25 ranked opponent since joining the FBS in 1992. Faced with a head football coaching change following the next season as well, Mohajir guided A-State through the process again by keeping the assistant coaching staff in place and giving the Red Wolves everything needed in order to pick up a second consecutive GoDaddy Bowl win. Mohajir has successfully guided A-State through coaching changes in other sports as well. He appointed Mike Hagen head men’s golf coach prior to the 2015-16 season, and he was promptly named the Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year.  Mohajir’s most recent hire, Mike Balado, was previously the lead assistant at one of the elite men’s basketball programs in the nation in Louisville and is considered one of the top up-and-coming head coaches in the nation. He replaced Mohajir’s previous hire, Grant McCasland, who led the Red Wolves to 20 regular-season victories to tie the school record in his lone year with the program. Six different coaches at A-State since Mohajir’s arrival have been named either a Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year or national Coach of the Year a combined 12 times. The value he places on the student-athlete has been evident, creating the inaugural A-State Awards held at the end of each year to celebrate both their academic and athletic accomplishments. He was behind the development of a student-advisory group that encompasses everything from a student-athlete mentorship program to fostering leadership in the community. The Red Wolves Leadership Academy program (RWLA) was designed with the sole purpose to obtain 100 percent job placement for all the athletics department’s student-athletes upon graduation, and that key initiative has been achieved the last three years in a row. The RWLA continues to strengthen with a new study

abroad component added to foster global awareness, which is often cited by employers as a positive attribute they seek. The study abroad program was designed to allow students the ability to make themselves more marketable in the workforce. The summer of 2015 saw Arkansas State student-athletes take part in the first study abroad program offered by any university and their athletics department in the nation. The program goes hand-in-hand with the RWLA’s primary purpose to obtain 100 percent job placement for all its graduating student-athletes. The Red Wolves also saw their academic performance reach an all-time high during record-setting 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 fall semesters, which saw student-athletes achieve the best four ever all-department GPA’s in consecutive years. A-State achieved a 3.083 all-department GPA in the fall of 2016. The 2016 fall semester featured a school-record 216 student-athletes named to the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll, and the Red Wolves’ all-department 3.070 GPA for the entire 2016-17 academic year was their highest ever. The athletics department also posted its best ever department-wide APR score each of the last two years, according to the latest data (2015-16 and 2014-15). Additionally, the Red Wolves’ have made a strong commitment to cost of attendance, appropriating funds for all student-athletes that is in the top 15 percent of all FBS schools. Mohajir’s candid media interviews and engaging public speaking appearances have captivated the Red Wolves fan base, but his actions in a short amount of time have also reflected his vision to take A-State Athletics to new heights. The primary development arm of A-State Athletics, formerly known as the Red Wolf Club, has been renamed the Red Wolves Foundation and a new logo has been introduced as part of a rebranding effort. The changes have been in conjunction with new and exciting initiatives that have been put in place, designed to make a significant impact on donor relations and fundraising opportunities. The positive results are evident with a 300 percent increase in the foundation’s annual fund revenue, while capital facilities fundraising is at an all-time high as well. A-State has also achieved its highest spot ever in the Collegiate Licensing Company’s (CLC) rankings and set school records for both football total season ticket sales and season ticket revenue. Not only that, A-State is ranked 21st among the schools in the Group of 5 conferences in self-generated revenue. The athletics department’s budget has increased from $15.9 million in Mohajir’s first year to $43.1 million (FY 2016), representing an increase of 171 percent. A-State Athletics placed among the top 10 programs in the nation in each of the four most recent Excellence in Management Cup standings, which annually reviews the nation’s athletics departments in regards to maximizing fiscal resources while providing results in the form of championship victo-

ries. The growth of A-State’s brand under Mohajir led to signing a new 10-year agreement in 2016 with Learfield Sports, one of the multimedia industry leaders, which will generate unprecedented revenue in the athletics department’s history. Arkansas State, in the fall of 2016, also entered a new seven-year partnership with adidas that is the most lucrative apparel-based contract in school history and makes it an elite adidas program. Mohajir has made it a point to engage the fan base, stressing the importance of fan experience through avenues such as courtside seating at basketball games, enhancing game-day atmosphere and ensuring that staff go out of their way to extend every fan their assistance. Also among the changes in this area was the installation of a new approximately 1,600 square foot LED Daktronics scoreboard at Centennial Bank Stadium. Facilities have received a number of facelifts since Mohajir’s arrival as well, making sure that the athletic department’s “front door” and other sports areas possess a firstclass appearance. A-State has completed, is in the process of completing and has committed a combined $60 million in construction and facility renovations since Mohajir’s arrival, including stadium lighting and seats at Centennial Bank Stadium, new tennis courts and a new outdoor track. Also included in the upgrades have been renovations and updates inside the A-State Football Facility and with weight rooms, locker rooms and training rooms at both Centennial Bank Stadium and the Convocation Center, where new seating has been installed. The Red Wolves Foundation received a $5 million gift commitment from alumnus Johnny Allison for a renovation to its “Centennial Expansion,” and it is the largest individual donation in A-State Athletics history. The construction and renovation project to the stadium’s press box and westside concourse covered 40,000 square feet and cost $26 million. Additionally, a 78,000-square foot Student Activity Center (SAC), which also serves as an indoor practice facility for A-State sports, has been constructed on the north side of Centennial Bank Stadium. The approximate cost was $11 million for construction of the center and the relocation of the soccer complex. He is currently overseeing the fundraising efforts for an approximately $26-million football facility project in Centennial Bank Stadium’s north end zone as well. Committed to Title IX and gender-equity initiatives, A-State has worked to improve coaching staff sizes and salaries, operation funding and facilities under Mohajir. Among the upgrades, A-State has completed a new women’s soccer and women’s tennis facility, which houses both squads’ locker rooms, training room and more. A new women’s bowling locker room, lounge and pro shop have also been

constructed. His philosophies on scheduling have been well documented, and they have resulted in home-and-home games with nationally-prominent programs such as Missouri and Miami for the first time in A-State history. He has capitalized on the Red Wolves recent success by gaining additional games against teams such as Southern Cal, making A-State the first Sun Belt program to schedule a football contest against the Trojans. Mohajir was appointed as the Sun Belt Conference’s representative on the inaugural College Football Playoff Athletic Director’s Advisory Board, acting as one of 10 athletics directors from FBS conferences on the board. He was also asked to serve on the NCAA Division I Championships Cabinet and the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee. Mohajir was one of six athletics directors appointed to the NCAA Division I Football Ad Hoc Recruiting Working Group, which was formed to conduct a comprehensive review of Division I football recruiting legislation. Additionally, he was invited to be a guest panelist at Knight Commission public meeting in May 2017 at the National Press Club. Mohajir continues to evaluate and process information to complete a national-branding campaign, but has already started building a strong foundation for the future of A-State Athletics. Mohajir’s career path went through three other NCAA Division I institutions, including the University of Missouri-Kansas City, Florida Atlantic and Kansas, before leading him back to his alma mater. Mohajir’s wealth of experience, history of success working with a university in A-State’s current conference and his noted accomplishments at a BCS automatic qualifying school made him a clear choice to take over the reins at Arkansas State. Mohajir has gained national respect in collegiate athletics while working with some of the finest administrators and coaches in the country, such as former FAU, Louisville, Miami and Oklahoma head football coach Howard Schnellenberger. The Overland Park, Kansas native has been involved with major fundraising campaigns at multiple universities, while al so overseeing corporate sales, marketing promotions and ticket sales. Prior to A-State, he most recently served 16 months as Kansas’ Senior Associate Director of Athletics and Chief Marketing Officer. Prior to his time with the Jayhawks, he spent a seven-year stint as Florida Atlantic’s Senior Associate Director of Athletics for External Relations from 2004-11 after working at UMKC from 1997-2004 as its Assistant Director of Athletics for External Relations. Mohajir worked at Kansas in a variety of capacities during two different stints, but his latest stop in Lawrence saw him assume responsibility for the Williams Education Fund that totaled over $22 million in revenue for the fiscal year

40

2012. He supervised the athletics department’s areas that generated over $40 million in revenue. In addition, Mohajir oversaw Kansas’ multimedia rights partnership for IMG. His most recent role as Chief Marketing Officer was heavily focused on the market strategies for the proposed football stadium renovations. Mohajir went to Kansas from his position at Florida Atlantic, where he oversaw development, marketing, ticket sales, corporate sales and the media relations department. Foremost among his responsibilities was a fundraising campaign for a $70 million on-campus football stadium. His astute project management helped the Owls’ football program reach the 2007 New Orleans Bowl in just its fourth year as an FBS program, an NCAA record for the fastest start-up program to go to a bowl game. During his tenure, FAU’s athletics department enhanced its major gift program 800 percent, Owl Club giving increased 400 percent and special-events revenue increased 150 percent. Mohajir’s original connection to KU dated back to the early 1990’s, when he was a graduate assistant, an assistant offensive line coach and game-day special team’s football coach for the Jayhawks (1993-96). He left Kansas in 1997 but didn’t go far, staying in the Kansas City area to take over his administrative position with the newly-created Division I UMKC Athletics program. There he supervised marketing and promotions, sports information, fundraising, radio and TV contracts, corporate sales, tickets, event operations, sports medicine, strength and conditioning and men’s soccer. Under his leadership, the Kangaroos saw dramatic increases in endowment, sponsorships, ticket revenue and its donor base. One of his more visible accomplishments at UMKC was the fundraising and construction efforts for a new training room and strength and conditioning center. During his time as an assistant coach at Kansas, Mohajir was on the staff that beat UCLA in the 1995 Aloha Bowl and had a final ranking of No. 9 in the AP poll. He was also a football ticket sales and promotions account executive for Kansas Athletics and earned a master’s degree in sports management at KU in 1997. Mohajir graduated from Arkansas State University with a major in sports management and a minor in business marketing in 1993. He was a starting safety on A-State’s football team. Mohajir is married to the former Julie Hammond and they have two daughters, Maria (16) and Molly (14), and son, Marco (9).
