Texas Woman’s University recently hired Lisa Haynes as the assistant director of athletics for business affairs. She started Aug. 1.
Haynes serves as the day-to-day financial administrator for athletics and provides management and oversight of the department’s business operations and budgets.
The creation of this position was possible through the NCAA Division II Strategic Alliance Matching Grant that is designed to provide financial assistance to conferences and member institutions committed to enhancing ethnic minority and gender representation in mid-to senior-level intercollegiate athletics administrative positions.

Haynes already has experience working with the athletics department by annually administering the NCAA Student-Athlete Experience Survey and the Athletics Interest Survey. Haynes also assists with data required for the NCAA Academic Success Rate. As a member of the TWU Athletics Council the past two years, she has been active in the reviewing athletics procedures and legislation proposals as well as assisting in the completion of the NCAA Institutional Self-Study.
