Binghamton Director of Athletics Patrick Elliott announced on Oct. 23 that Ed Scott has been promoted to Senior Associate AD for Student Services.
Scott, who has served as an associate AD since coming to Binghamton in 2008, will continue to oversee the student services area but in his new role, will work to expand Binghamton’s student-athlete welfare and life skills and student wellness education programs. Scott will also be in charge of enhancing student-athlete citizenship, conduct and related educational programing. In addition, he will oversee the department’s on-site professional development and will collaborate with campus-wide departments to better serve the needs of educating students
“Ed has played a critical role in the growth and development of our student-athlete success center,” Elliott said. “In his new role, he will further collaborate with the University community as well as develop new initiatives and programming to ensure that our student-athletes have the tools and resources to achieve academic excellence.”
Under Scott’s direction, the student services wing has seen unprecedented growth and success. Binghamton student-athletes have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.10 or higher in five consecutive years. Last spring, Binghamton produced a conference-best 191 members of the America East Academic Honor Roll, the eighth straight spring that the Bearcats have led the way.
