The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) President Taylor Eighmy today announced the selection of Lisa Campos, current Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics at Northern Arizona University (NAU), as UTSA Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Athletics Director.
Campos has led the NAU Lumberjacks’ athletic department since 2012.
During her time in Flagstaff, NAU captured 32 Big Sky and Western Athletic Conference championships and nine teams advanced to NCAA postseason competition, including the first NCAA Division I Championship in school history by the men’s cross country team in 2016.
When Campos was named Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics at NAU, she became one of 26 females and the youngest in the country to lead a Division I program at the time of her hire. She currently sits on the prestigious NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee, a subcommittee of the new governance model.
“My family and I are so excited to join the Roadrunner family and the San Antonio community. UTSA is a remarkable institution and I look forward to working with President Eighmy,” said Campos. “As a Hispanic, first-generation college graduate, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work at an institution that aligns with my values. I look forward to serving the student-athletes, coaches and staff as we work together to continue building UTSA Athletics.”
UTSA competes in 17 sports at the NCAA Division I level as a member of Conference USA.
Prior to her time at NAU, Campos served as Senior Associate Athletic Director at the University of Texas at El Paso from 2006-12. During her nine years at UTEP, she cultivated several significant gifts to the program and oversaw a multi-million dollar budget, among her many responsibilities.
Campos earned both her bachelor’s degree in business administration and her master’s degree in student affairs in higher education from Colorado State. She holds a doctorate degree in educational leadership from UTEP.
She and her husband, Darren D’Attilio, have a three-year-old son, Christopher.
