Assistant A.D. at UIS takes job in Florida

The excitement of big-city life beckoned and Alison Fitzgerald is heeding the call.

Fitzgerald, 26, is leaving her post as the assistant director of athletics for compliance at the University of Illinois Springfield and has accepted a similar position at NCAA Division II Barry University in Miami Shores, Fla.

Fitzgerald has helped UIS make the transition from NAIA to NCAA Division II with the school set to attain full membership for the 2010-11 academic year. She became UIS’ first compliance director in June 2008 after graduating from Marquette University’s law school.

Fitzgerald was featured in a April 21, 2010, article in the State Journal-Register.
