Mike Morgan was named assistant athletic director for business and finance in July 2007.
Mr. Morgan has served UMBC in its Financial Services Office since 1980. He began his tenure as a budget analyst and was named the campus’ chief budget official in 1988, where he was responsible for directing and administering the development and implementation of the 300-million dollar university budget. He earned a promotion and served as the assistant to the Assistant Vice President for Finance in July of 2006.
“After 27 outstanding years in Financial Services, I was looking for new challenges in my career,” Morgan said. “I can’t think of a better place to be than with UMBC Athletics.”
In addition to his duties as budget officer, the Baltimore native prepared financial reports for all auxiliary departments including Athletics, Residential Life, the Commons and Food Services. He has served on two NCAA certification committees for athletics and has also been a member of numerous campus-wide committees involving planning, enrollment management, facilities and information technology.
“We are very fortunate to have Mike Morgan join the Retriever athletic community,” Dr. Brown said. “He has always been a great supporter of our program and worked well with us from his administrative position. There is no one more qualified and no one more dedicated to the UMBC community.”
Morgan earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from UMBC in 1977 and earned a master’s degree in Business Administration in Finance from Loyola (Md.) College in 1981
