Dr. Ingrid Wicker McCree, Ed.D. was appointed as the Director of Athletics at North Carolina Central University on April 23, 2008, after holding the interim position for five months.

McCree, who joined the rank of only a handful of women athletic directors in the UNC system, previously served as NCCU’s associate athletics director for internal affairs. Prior to her appointment as Director of Athletics, she served in a variety of leadership positions in both conference and national level organizations, most notably as president of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Executive Board from 2004-06, becoming only the second woman to ever hold that position in the league’s history. In addition, she served as a member of the NCAA’s Division II Legislation Committee from 2003-07.

In recognition of her work, McCree received the CIAA Leadership Award for Service as president of the Executive Board and was named the CIAA Senior Woman Administrator of the Year in the spring of 2006.

McCree was one of the driving forces behind NCCU’s reclassification to NCAA Division I. From 1998 until her appointment as Director of Athletics in 2008, she oversaw the internal operations of the Athletics Department, including all compliance and eligibility programs.
