ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION Staff Bio
Shaney Fink
Director of Athletics
Coach Info:
Position: Director of Athletics
Phone: (206) 296-6400
Email: finks@seattleu.edu

Seattle University President Stephen Sundborg, S.J. announced that, following a national search, Shaney Fink has been named the new Director of Athletics for Seattle U, effective Nov. 1, 2016.

Fink comes to Seattle U from the University of San Diego, a private Catholic university, where she most recently served as Senior Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator. Her full tenure at USD spanned more than 17 years and included previous roles in compliance and student services, academic support and as an assistant volleyball coach for the Toreros.

“Seattle University is proud of its athletic program and we are confident that Shaney Fink will build on our success and take the entire program to a higher level,” President Sundborg said. “It is exciting to welcome her to Seattle U. She is a dynamic leader who brings great experience from an excellent athletic program at the University of San Diego.”

“I am honored and thrilled to join Seattle University as its new Director of Athletics,” Fink said. “I am grateful for the support of President Sundborg, the Trustees, Executive Vice President Tim Leary, Vice President and search committee chair Mary Petersen and all those who were involved in the process. I am looking forward to building on the foundation of success at Seattle U and engaging the entire community, to work together to fulfill the bold vision for Seattle University Athletics.”

At USD, Fink was responsible for day-to-day operations and management of 17 NCAA Division I teams and 450 student-athletes. She was a key point person for many leadership, strategic planning, inclusion and fundraising initiatives during her USD tenure.

Fink served as a member of the President’s Cabinet and assisted in the creation of the 2008-14 and 2015-17 Strategic Plans for Athletics, as well as the 2008 Master Plan for Athletics Facilities and Campus Recreation.

She held oversight responsibility for a development team and assisted in development and management of a $20+ million Athletics Department budget.

“We are thrilled to welcome Shaney Fink to Seattle University as our new Director of Athletics,” Executive Vice President Tim Leary stated. “Shaney’s extensive experience managing all aspects of the athletic program at University of San Diego and her deep commitment to student-athlete success – in the classroom, on the field, and in the community – make her an exceptional fit to lead and serve our athletic program here at Seattle U.”

At USD, Fink founded and chaired the Torero Athletics Council, a grassroots effort to facilitate communication between faculty and members of the athletics department. She also created both the 2008-14 and 2015-17 USD Athletics Gender Equity Plans, going on to serve as chair of the Gender Equity, Diversity and Student-Athlete Welfare Committee.

Fink served as the West Coast Conference representative on the NCAA Legislative Council and the Pioneer Football League representative on the NCAA Legislative Council Football Championship Series Subcommittee from 2011 to 2015.

As a member of the West Coast Conference Executive Council, she chaired the Academics, Legislation & Compliance Cabinet and Senior Woman Administrators and sat on the Waiver Committee.

A graduate of the Women Leaders in College Sports (formerly NACWAA) Executive Institute, Fink participated in the NCAA Pathways program after completing the 2015 NACWAA Executive Institute in Kansas City in 2015. In 2013 she was named NCAA Division I FCS Administrator of the Year by NACWAA.

“It is not easy to leave my University of San Diego family,” said Fink. “However, as I look ahead to this opportunity at Seattle U, I am especially grateful to USD Athletics Director Ky Snyder, President Emerita Mary Lyons and President Jim Harris who have been wonderful mentors and friends.”

During the 1999 season Fink assisted the Torero volleyball coaching staff, helping USD to a 23-6 record and second round finish in the NCAA Tournament. Prior to USD she gained coaching experience at the high school, college (Colgate University) and international levels. Upon completion of her collegiate volleyball career at University of California at Berkeley, Fink competed professionally in beach and indoor volleyball, domestically and internationally.

Fink earned her B.A. in Social Science from Berkeley and her Master's Degree at USD in Counseling. Shaney and her husband, Tom Vorkoper, have three children - Lucas, Mia and Leon.
