Brynn Richter began her career in collegiate athletics as the Assistant Director of Athletic Academic Services and CHAMPS/Life Skills Coordinator at her alma mater, Bowling Green State University, in 2005. Since that time, she has also served in collegiate athletics at Colorado State, Florida State University, Florida Gulf Coast University and at the NJCAA level at Florida Southwestern State College.
As Assistant Director of Academic Services, Director of Educational Services and Lead Learning Specialist at Florida State University (FSU), Richter helped lead the overhaul of an academic department fraught with allegations of academic misconduct and restructured academic learning programs to best suit student-athlete needs and increase academic success rates.
At FSU, Richter reorganized the Learning Specialist and tutorial staffs to ensure greater accountability and a higher level of staff oversight and implemented new programs to reduce unnecessary spending and create an environment centered on high impact services rather than passive learning strategies. Richter also successfully re-established relationships with campus constituents to reduce the effects of years of athletic siloing and ensure student-athletes greater access to a wide range of academic resources including educational testing and disability services.At the end of her tenure at FSU, Richter served as the Interim Director of Academic Services before moving onto to Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) where she would eventually become the Assistant Athletic Director of Academic and Regulatory Services overseeing all academic and compliance matters.
At FGCU, Richter grew a staff of one to a staff of three full time professionals and two full time interns. In 2011-2012, she helped FGCU student-athletes reach record-breaking heights as she led the student-athlete population to a 3.21 cumulative GPA that saw 73 percent of the student-athletes achieve a 3.0 or higher. Then supported student-athletes in shattering this record the very next year in 2012-2013 as they achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.29 with nearly each team establishing a new record or either highest term or overall GPA and 75 percent of student-athletes earning Atlantic Sun or Coastal Collegiate Swimming Association All-Academic Honor, the greatest number is school history. Upon her appointment to Assistant Athletic Director, FGCU Athletic Director, had this to share
"A veteran of higher education, Brynn was a tremendous addition to our athletics academic unit last summer. She very quickly generated confidence from all who worked with her, most notable our coaches, student-athletes, and fellow FGCU staffers.
In turn, she was a key contributor in our establishing new academic records. With a demonstrated big picture mentality, we look forward to her undertaking on an expanded role as a member of our athletics executive team.”
-Ken Kavanagh (Athletic Director for FGCU)
In 2013, Richter suspended her full-time career in collegiate athletics to grow her family and returned to work part-time to help former Athletic Director, Carl McAloose, re-establish collegiate athletics at NJCAA member institution Florida Southwestern State College (FSW). At FSW, Richter served as Director of Academic Services and Budget Administrator, establishing academic and administrative protocols to ensure student-athlete and administrative success.
