The 2008-09 season featured the beginning of Jason Fein’s tenure as the Director of Athletics at Drew University. Previously, Fein served in the same position at the College of Staten Island, culminating nine years of work at the school. In his first years at Drew, he has brought a renewed energy and vision to the Ranger program, overseeing several new initiatives including the drafting of an athletic facilities master plan.
Fein also worked with university advancement to re-envision the Rangers development initiatives and start the Blue & Green club, the official fundraising arm of Drew University Athletics. The cornerstone of these efforts culminate each year with the Blue & Green golf outing, a first class golf experience for alumni, parents and friends of Drew athletics.
An active member of the national athletic administrative scene, Fein currently serves on the NCAA Division III Interpretations and Legislation Committee as well as the NCAA Woman of the Year Selection Committee. He is also the vice president of the college athletic administrators of New Jersey (CAANJ). He has previously served on the board of directors for the ECAC Sports Information Director’s Association (ECAC-SIDA), also serving as the organization’s president. In addition, he co-chaired the 2003 ECAC-SIDA workshop in Staten Island. He has served as a member of the NCAA Regional Soccer Selection Committee as well as the ECAC Regional Basketball Selection Committee.
Prior to CSI, Fein spent three years as the Assistant Athletic Director and Sports Information Director at his alma mater, Brooklyn College. He played an instrumental role in bringing back the college’s intercollegiate Division III athletics program after the school had earlier suspended their Division I program.
Fein has worked media relations and press operations for the 1996 Atlanta and 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games, the 1998 Goodwill Games, and baseball playoffs with the New York Yankees since 1996. In 2006, Fein was honored by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) with their Inaugural Rising Star Award, given annually to a trailblazer among sports information professionals.
Fein received his Bachelors Degree in Athletic Training and his Masters in Sports Management from Brooklyn College.
