The National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (NACWAA) and the Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) organizations united 15 years ago to create a leadership and management development program for women in college athletics administration (HERS History, 2009). The groups founded what is now known as the Institute for Administrative Advancement (IAA). Several studies of career paths of female athletic administrators have focused on successful leadership factors in college athletics and the tactics for professional advancement (Acosta & Carpenter, 2009). However, there is limited information about leadership-development training initiatives for female athletic administrators. This study’s purpose was to determine the background characteristics of female athletics administrator who enrolled in the IAA program, and in addition, examine IAA graduates’ perceptions of the IAA goals and curricular components.
