Posted By: Jehan Bunch on January 11, 2010

January 5, 2010




Atlanta, Ga. - Clark Atlanta University has removed the interim tag for Athletics Director Dr. Tamica Smith Jones effective January 4, 2010.

The Atlanta native was appointed Liaison to the Office of the President for Athletics in January 2008 after serving in the role of Senior Woman Administrator/Compliance since her arrival at CAU in 2002. In December 2008, she was promoted to Interim Director of Athletics.

Jones oversees 11 intercollegiate sports teams (six women’s teams and five men’s teams) more than 200 student-athletes and 30 staff members. In 2008, CAU received an NCAA Community Engagement Award.



She is a member of several professional organizations such as National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators (since 2001) and a graduate of the NACWAA/HERS Institute (2006); National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, and National Association for Athletics Compliance.



She has served as the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference SWA chair and Regional Committee designee for volleyball, presented for NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Continuing Education, facilitated at the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills Orientation and participated in the NCAA Division II Leadership Action Academy. Her recent and most distinguished achievements include the NCAA Leadership Institute for Ethnic Minority Females (Class of 2007), a two-year appointment to serve on the NCAA Committee for Women’s Athletics, the NCAA Division II Athletic Directors Committee, and Postgraduate Scholarship Committee. Jones was also asked to serve as a panelist at the 2010 NCAA Convention’s Leadership Session.

Prior to her arrival at CAU, Jones served as Senior Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator, along with several coaching assignments at Morris Brown College, Atlanta, GA (1999-2002). She began her career in intercollegiate athletic administration at Savannah State University, where she was appointed interim head women’s volleyball and basketball coach, while obtaining her Master’s Degree (1997-1999). Jones earned her B.S. Degree in Business Administration from Alabama A&M University in 1997, Master’s of Public Administration Degree from Savannah State University in 1999, and her Doctorate Degree in Business Administration from Kennedy-Western University in 2005.

Dr. Jones is married to T’Michael Jones, a graduate of Morris Brown College. They are the parents of two children, T’Micah Jordan and T’Miyah Jourdan.
