  • TTU President Oldham named to NCAA Board of Governors
    September 27, 2021
    COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Dr. Phil Oldham knows first-hand how important collegiate athletics are for students, colleges and communities. After all, the Tennessee Tech president was a former student-athlete himself back in his days at Freed-Hardeman. Fast forward years later -- Oldham’s vision and direction for Tech has ushered in a new era on the Cookeville campus. Now, he will have the opportunity to help shape the direction of the NCAA and countless student-athletes nationwide as he begins his tenure on its Board of Governors.  “It’s something I never really dreamed of being able to do,” Oldham said. “I grew up playing sports – I’ve loved sports all my life. In college, I played on the tennis team on the NAIA level. Most of the jobs I’ve had on campuses have been academically related – department head, dean, provost.   “I’ve certainly enjoyed sports on campus as a fan, but, as a president, this is first time I’ve really had to be in a position of responsibility over athletics. I’ve had the opportunity to be on the Division I Board of Directors for the last couple of years. Now to be asked to be on the Board of Governors -- that is the penultimate in the governance structure of the NCAA.”
