Director of Athletics
Tom Hathaway, a veteran sports administrator, enters his third year as Cincinnati State's athletic director.
Hathaway has compiled a wide array of experience during his three-plus decades in athletic administration. Much of that was accumulated during his 27 years as assistant athletic director at the University of Cincinnati where he was responsible for sports communications and served in a variety of administrative roles.
After UC, Hathaway has served as athletic director at Miamisburg High School before taking over at Cincinnati State in May of 2012. While at Miamisburg, he supervised more than $1.2 million in improvement projects to the school’s athletic facilities and developed a long-range plan for the development of sports programs and facilities. He also launched outreach efforts with area youth sports organizations and worked on a wellness coalition involving the school, the city of Miamisburg, township officials and employees of a nearby hospital.
“Tom not only has the skills to manage Cincinnati State’s sports programs, he also gets them the attention they deserve,” said Cincinnati State President O’dell M. Owens.
Cincinnati State competes in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, women's volleyball and golf. Over the past three years the golf team, the men’s soccer team, and the men’s and women’s basketball teams have competed in National Junior College Athletic Association national championships.
Hathaway, a graduate of the College of Wooster, launched his career as assistant commissioner of the small-college Ohio Athletic Conference.
He was the 2009 recipient of the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (OIAAA) Horizon Award and was recognized for 35 years of service in athletic administration by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA).He is the author of seven publications and two highlights videos that have received national awards. He also co-authored a book on the history of UC basketball.
