About UNG Athletics
The University of North Georgia Department of Athletics is located in Memorial Hall on the Dahlonega campus. The Nighthawks compete at the NCAA Division II level as a member of the Peach Belt Conference, sponsoring 13 intercollegiate sports, including the addition of women’s track & field in 2016-17. UNG currently offers five men’s sports, seven women’s sports and mixed rifle, which competes as a member of the Southern Conference.
Lindsay Reeves, Director of Athletics, leads an administrative staff of five associate (2) and assistant (3) athletic directors with the primary goal of servant leadership of the student-athletes and coaches. The senior staff was restructured in the summer of 2016 and was reorganized into five administrative categories: Business & Finance, External Operations, Facilities, Internal Operations and Student Services.
In the summer of 2017, the department added an Assistant Athletic Director, Student Services through a NCAA Diversity grant to up the senior administrative team to six people.
Mission: We will build and maintain highly competitive intercollegiate programs that rank among the elite in both the Peach Belt Conference and NCAA Division II. These programs will provide a comprehensive learning experience for our student-athletes by teaching them the core principles of competition, integrity, fair play, personal character, and good sportsmanship. As a department, we will emphasize academic excellence and achievement to all of our student-athletes, contribute to their social development, and prepare them for meaningful lives and careers while perpetuating the rich heritage and tradition of the University of North Georgia.
