Wiki

Mark A. Emmert, Ph.D., (born December 16, 1952) was named president of the NCAA on April 27, 2010. He is the fifth CEO of the NCAA; he assumed his duties on 1 November 2010. Emmert was previously the 30th president of the University of Washington, his alma mater, taking office in June 2004, becoming the first alumnus in 48 years to lead the UW. He left Washington on 1 October 2010 having announced his departure for the NCAA Executive Directorship on 27 April 2010.

Before Emmert became president of the University of Washington, he was chancellor at Louisiana State University and held faculty and administration positions at the University of Connecticut, Montana State University, and University of Colorado.

In 2006, the UW established the Husky Promise, a guarantee that tuition and fees will be covered for lower-income students from Washington state who are accepted to the UW. The UW also has increased access for Washington students by expanding UW Bothell and UW Tacoma to four-year programs in the fall of 2006. The UW is now looking to add a fourth campus north of Seattle to better serve the residents of North Puget Sound. The UW Seattle campus is expanding with the purchase of the Safeco property in the University District, adding about 500,000 square feet (46,000 m2) of building space.
