N E W YO R K C I T Y I S From its beginnings in a schoolhouse in lower Manhattan, Columbia University has grown to encompass two principal campuses in New York City: the historic, neoclassical campus in the Morningside Heights neighborhood and the modern Medical Center further uptown, in Washington Heights.

Today, Columbia is one of the top academic and research institutions in the world, conducting pathbreaking research in medicine, science, the arts, and the humanities. It includes three undergraduate schools, thirteen graduate and professional schools, and a school of continuing education.

A member of the Ivy League, Columbia sponsors 29 intercollegiate varsity sports for men and women which compete at the Division I level. Columbia has won 11 Ivy League titles over the past three years, the most in any three-year span in school history.

In New York, the greatest city in the world has everything at your fingertips. A baseball game at Yankee Stadium, a world-class Broadway show, or just a ride around the city where neighborhoods flow freely into one another, New York has it all.

HEAD COACH KERRI WHITAKER

Fueled by focus and determination, combined with an even-keeled, winning attitude, Columbia University lacrosse head coach Kerri Whitaker begins her eighth season at the helm of a program striving to reach the top of the Ivy League. The Columbia lacrosse team has seen much success during Whitaker’s tenure. Her players have earned All-Ivy League recognition 26 times over seven seasons and have been named Regional All-Americans a total of nine times. Whitaker has guided the Lions to a 44-13 mark in non-conference play over the last seven seasons and led the 2006 squad to the first .500 season in program history at 8-8. In 2009, the Lions started out a perfect 5-0 for the first time ever en route to setting a program record for wins in a season at 9-7. Whitaker was named the Lions’ head coach in September 2002 following one year as the program’s assistant coach. She became just the second head coach since the inception of the Lion varsity lacrosse program in 1997. Her leadership has brought her team from the startup stages to one that can respectably square off with any team in the nation. Under her tutelage, nearly every mark in the Columbia record books has been broken. Over the last four years, her players have repeatedly set new program bests for goals, assists, and points for single-season and career. Whitaker has coached all nine of the program’s players who have reached 100 career points or more. Under Whitaker’s guidance, Carrie Anderer ’06CC became the Lions’ first-ever first team All-Ivy League selection in 2005, while Kate Lombard ‘07CC became the program’s first four-time All-Ivy League honoree. Just last season, Holly Glynn ‘09CC, who holds nearly every offensive record for the program, became the first Lion to garner first team All-Region recognition. Whitaker served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Developmental Team for four years. She has also been a clinician at the U.S. Lacrosse National Coaches Convention and serves as the chair of the academic awards committee for the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association.

A 1996 graduate of Brown with a degree in English, Whitaker was a first-team All-Ivy League selection in both lacrosse and field hockey for the Bears. She earned first team All-America honors in lacrosse in 1996 and went on to compete for the U.S. National Elite Team for four years. Prior to Columbia, Whitaker was an assistant coach at Syracuse for five years where she helped develop a new program from its inaugural season into a nationally-ranked and prominent NCAA tournament team. Whitaker is a native of Ridley Township, Pa. and resides in Manhattan.

COACHING STAFF

ALLISON EVANS Assistant Coach First Season William & Mary ‘03

Allison Evans joined the Columbia women’s lacrosse coaching staff in August 2009. The former US Elite Team member comes to Morningside Heights after spending the previous two seasons as the top assistant at her alma mater, William and Mary. “Allison came up through a good program at William and Mary, and that helped enhance her strong leadership and organizational skills,” said Whitaker. “She is passionate about the game and is a skilled teacher. I am excited to work with Allison so that together we can build on the success of the 2009 season.” Over the last two years, Evans has played an integral part in helping the Tribe to back-to-back Colonial Athletic Association regular season titles and top-20 national rankings. During those years, Evans worked primarily with the attacking unit, helping the Tribe establish program records for single-season goals (244) and points (347) in 2009. “I am really excited about joining the Columbia lacrosse program,” said Evans. “I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the game with a team that continues to make great strides towards becoming a strong force in the Ivy League.” A native of Annandale, Va., Evans graduated from William and Mary in 2003 with a degree is psychology. The midfielder was an All-Colonial Athletic Association selection in both 2002 and 2003, serving as team captain as a senior. She finished her impressive career with 85 goals and 31 assists for 116 career points. Evans led her team offensively in her final two seasons, including a career-high 52 points (33 goals and 19 assists) as a junior. After her successful collegiate career, Evans was one of 24 players selected to the US National Elite Team in the summer of 2006. Prior to her time at W&M, Evans worked as a financial analyst for JPI, a real estate developer in McLean Va., and was an asset analyst for the Mills Corporation in Chevy Chase, Md. Following her 2003 graduation, she coached at St. Mary’s School in England and at Annandale High School, her alma mater.

JUMPEI HARADA Athletic Trainer Third Season University of Alabama ‘00 Jumpei Harada joined the Columbia training staff in July 2007 as an assistant athletic trainer and works with lacrosse, football, indoor track and women’s swimming. Harada came to Morningside Heights from Pennsylvania State University, where he served as an assistant athletic trainer, working with football for three years. During this time, the Nittany Lions attended two bowl games (FedEx Orange Bowl and Outback Bowl). Previously, Harada also worked as an athletic training intern with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2004, and as a graduate assistant athletic trainer at the University of Florida for two years. From 2001 to 2002, he was the head athletic trainer for Japan’s Women’s National FID Basketball team, which participated in the World FID Basketball Tournament in Portugal. Harada graduated from the University of Alabama in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in human environmental science with an athletic training certification. In 2004, Harada also received a master’s degree in health and human performance with a focus in athletic training and sports medicine from the University of Florida.

DEBORA L. SPAR President, Barnard College

Debora L. Spar was named President of Barnard College in June 2008. She is the Spangler Family Professor of Business Administration and has been Senior Associate Dean for Faculty Research and Development at Harvard Business School. In one, she epitomizes the teacher-scholar model that is the linchpin of Barnard’s superb faculty. In the other, she has been a stellar administrator who has brought innovative leadership to governance issues. And despite the demands of both, she has also devoted herself to the concerns of social justice that are so important to our students; she has served as Chair of the Harvard University Committee on Human Rights and is the creator and Chair of Making Markets Work, a program to develop leaders in both the private and public sector in African nations. As Senior Associate Dean, Professor Spar was responsible for distributing nearly $20 million in research funds by working closely with faculty on their project goals and demands. She instituted a fellowship that allows faculty members to live abroad to work on international research, and a program that brings visiting scholars from other countries to Harvard. Professor Spar also developed a new policy on family leave and led the effort to develop a part-time tenure track. Professor Spar has been awarded the Student Association Faculty Award for Outstanding Teaching and often serves as an advisor for students on research projects. She is the author of dozens of the case studies that are used in Harvard Business School classes. These reflect her expertise in both international affairs and ethical issues, and include “The Pharmaceutical Industry Responds to AIDS,” “Union Carbide’s Bhopal Plant,” and “Nike and International Labor Practices.” She frequently acts as a consultant for multinational corporations, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Professor Spar has written four books and co-authored two. Her most recent, “The Baby Business,” was published in 2006 and explored the economic, political and social issues surrounding reproductive technologies.

DR. M. DIANNE MURPHY

Director, Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education

When Columbia University President Lee C. Bollinger set out to hire a new athletics director in 2004, he knew he needed someone with the vision to attain national excellence and put Columbia Athletics on par with the rest of the University, one of the greatest in the world. Five years later, there is little doubt that Dr. M. Dianne Murphy was the perfect fit for Columbia. Now beginning her sixth full year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education, Murphy has presided over the three most successful years in recent Columbia Athletics history, including tangible improvements in football, men and women’s basketball, and a combined 11 Ivy League titles over the past three years – the most in any three-year span in school history. Murphy has been Columbia University’s Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education since November 2004. In five years at the helm of the athletics program at Columbia, she has demonstrated the same passion and commitment to achieving excellence in intercollegiate athletics that has marked her entire career as an athletics administrator. She has overseen a number of initiatives aimed at transforming the experience of Columbia’s more than 800 student-athletes. She has undertaken a complete strategic planning process aimed at shortand long-term excellence in athletics. She has attracted several new high-level head coaches and administrators to the program, and spearheaded the creation of the Columbia Athletics Hall of Fame, which had its inaugural ceremony on February 18, 2006. The second Athletics Hall of Fame class was inducted on October 2, 2008. During the 2008-09 academic year, Murphy spearheaded the celebration of the Columbia-Barnard Athletic Consortium Silver Anniversary, honoring 25 years of women’s athletics at Columbia. She also initiated the Leaders for Life program, designed to provide comprehensive leadership training to studentathlete representatives from all 29 of Columbia’s varsity sports programs. In 2006-07, women’s golf won an Ivy League title in just its fourth season as a varsity program, and women’s soccer won its first-ever Ivy League crown. The All-American Football Foundation recognized the success of the football program under Murphy, and, in March 2007, selected her as one of two recipients of the General Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award for excellence in football.

The Lions’ trend of success continued in 2007-08, when four Columbia teams won Ivy League championships, including the first title in nine years for men’s golf and the first in 31 years for baseball. To cap a memorable year, Murphy was named the Football Championship Subdivision Administrator of the Year by the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators. In 2008-09, men’s golf and men’s tennis continued their excellence within the Ivy League as the Lions won their second straight Ivy League title in men’s golf and the second league championship in three years in men’s tennis. Murphy came to Columbia after six years as Director of Athletics and Recreation at the University of Denver, where she led the Pioneers’ program from NCAA Division II to one of the nation’s top Division I athletics programs. Under Murphy’s leadership, eight Denver sport programs made NCAA tournament appearances and, on four occasions, Denver teams won a national title. In 2003-04, Denver enjoyed its best season when it won the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship, placed third in the NCAA Skiing Championship, and advanced to NCAA tournaments in women’s soccer, women’s tennis, and men and women’s golf. The scope of Denver’s athletics excellence was recognized nationally through the United States Sports Academy’s Directors’ Cup, which recognized the best overall athletics programs in the nation, determined by an award of points based on teams’ finishes. The University of Denver finished among the nation’s top third of athletics programs in each of its six years since becoming a Division I member in 1998-99. In 2004, the Pioneers set a University record when they finished 58th in the Directors’ Cup, in the top 20 percent of all NCAA Division I schools. Denver’s athletics program served as a model for national and regional academic, as well as athletics, excellence. The Pioneers gained numerous academic honors, among them the Sun Belt Conference Graduation Rate Award, which it earned for five consecutive years.
