UNC Asheville Director of Athletics Janet R. Cone, Huron Managing Director Tim Walsh and Huron advisor and Duke Vice President and Director of Athletics Emeritus Kevin White join ADU’s Steph Garcia Cichosz at the 2023 NACDA Convention to discuss using data to tell the story and shape the future of Bulldogs Athletics. According to Cone, the resulting strategic plan, “Dream Bigger. Achieve More.,” is a living document – one sent to her via editable Word document rather than a PDF.
