The guest speaker for our upcoming meeting will be Jeff Eisen, Vice-President for Athletics at the University of Mount Olive. Eisen was the Director of Athletics at the University for 10 years before being promoted to Vice President in 2015.

During his tenure, Trojan teams have won 28 regular season conference titles, 49 conference championships, and have earned 52 NCAA Tournament berths. The Trojans won a school-record eight conference championships in 2016-17. In addition, Mount Olive won the 2008 NCAA D-II Baseball National Championship, the school’s first-ever national championship.

Under Eisen, Trojan athletics has seen rapid growth, including the establishment of the Mount Olive Athletics Hall of Fame, the creation of new positions within the athletics department, and facility enhancements. Mount Olive has also expanded from 14 to 20 sports under Eisen, with the addition of men’s and women’s outdoor track and field in 2007-08, men’s and women’s indoor track and field in 2010-11, and men’s and women’s lacrosse in 2012-13.

Eisen was instrumental in restarting the Trojan Club, a fundraising organization for UMO athletics. The Trojan Club had more than 100 members in its first year alone and has grown to over 600 members and record-level donations.
