Ben Broussard, CU’s assistant vice chancellor of advancement and associate athletic director, is one of this year’s nine Next Up honorees.

CollegeAD’s Next Up 2019 presented by Adidas recognizes senior-level athletics administrators handpicked by some of the most respected athletic directors in the industry, who are believed to be ready to take the next step as athletic directors in their own right.

“I tend to measure success in two ways. First, have I given more back to the world and institution than I’ve taken? It’s the reason leaders last, it’s the reason you take every phone call from the person trying to get where you are,” said Broussard.

“And second, I’m a checklist guy. Every morning I take a look at my checklist from the day before and if I have a list full of check marks, full of progress, I feel successful.”

Broussard joined CU in 2017. He also oversees all aspects of the Buff Club, the athletic department's fundraising arm. 

Recognition for each class member will take place over the course of three days (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday) during the National Association of Collegiate Director of Athletics convention.
