Patricia Meiser, in her 20th year as Director of Athletics at the University of Hartford, has contributed to intercollegiate athletics as a player, coach and administrator and has seen Title IX, its development and its impact over the last 40 years first hand.

After earning her bachelor's degree from West Chester University ('69) and her M.Ed. ('71) from Penn State, Meiser was the head women's basketball coach and a tenured faculty member with the Nittany Lions. She handed out the first women's basketball scholarship at Penn State ('74) and advanced the program to national recognition. Meiser also earned her MBA from Penn State and then served as associate athletics director and senior woman administrator at Connecticut, playing a pivotal role in the rejuvenation of the athletics program. Since becoming Director of Athletics at Hartford, Meiser has enhanced the Hawks' and the America East Conference's commitment to academics, athletics and leadership through student-athlete and staff engagement, community outreach and service, and a capital campaign which funded a major upgrade to athletics facilities. She is one of just 30 Division I female director of athletics and has won the Northeast Region I-AAA Athletic Director of the Year twice for her significant contributions.
