Athletics: Daniel Webster College Names Robin Seidman Director Of Athletics
Nashua – Daniel Webster College announced today the appointment of Robin Seidman as Director of Athletics. The announcement was made by Dr. Michael Diffily, President of the College.
Seidman, who becomes just the fifth director for the Eagles program in its NCAA era, and the ninth director since 1980, comes to DWC having served the last seven years as assistant director of athletics at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Robin Seidman to the DWC community as our next director of athletics,” said Diffily. “Robin brings an extraordinarily rich and diverse background through his experience at Brandeis and we have the utmost confidence his vision and leadership will continue to advance our program in the years ahead.”
There’s little Seidman did not do during his tenure with the Judges’ program over the past seven years. Over that span, Seidman oversaw a myriad of responsibilities including purchasing and operations, the oversight of 17 NCAA Division III varsity programs, brand management, budget management, facilities oversight, equipment management, recruiting, contracts, and game management.
Seidman also served various roles chairing hiring committees, the Brandeis Physical Education Curriculum Committee, and managed a number of athletic facility renovation projects.
“I was immediately attracted to the extraordinary potential here at Daniel Webster College,” said Seidman. “I love the concept of the small New England college that DWC represents and I am excited to help DWC and the Eagles athletics program reach that potential.”
“During the interview process I was inspired by the commitment and love of sport shared with me by both the DWC coaches and its student-athletes,” Seidman continued. “This is a passion I share with the staff and students, and I am excited to help the program grow. Athletics should be an integral part of the college community. My goals include establishing an athletic program DWC will be proud of by creating an environment to foster both academic and athletic achievement from and for our student-athletes.”
Seidman earned both his undergraduate degree (2000) and MBA (2006) from Brandeis and resides in Waltham, Mass.
