EUP Athletic Director, Bruce Baumgartner, takes new post after over 30 years

Local News

The most recognizable name in Edinboro history, arguably, is leaving his post for another role at the university.

Four-time Olympic medalist and Edinboro Athletic Director Bruce Baumgartner will become the Assistant Vice President for University Advancement at the end of the semester.

His focus will be to help the university’s fundraising campaigns.  Baumgartner has been a part of the school’s athletic department for more than 30 years.  He says the university approached him about the change but calls it a mutual and lateral move.  “Maybe it is a great time for the university to change some leadership and move some things around to set a path so that we can move forward and hopefully we can generate more money”.

Edinboro Professor Katherine Robbins will serve as interim Athletic Director beginning May 14th.
