Erin Hiltner, a Limon native and the former assistant commissioner of the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC), is the new assistant athletic director for compliance for the University of Colorado Colorado Springs Athletic Department.
“It feels great to be coming back home to Colorado with this opportunity to be at UCCS and part of the (Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference) again,” Hiltner said. “UCCS is such a remarkable campus and I feel so fortunate to be coming in at a time where a lot of great things are going on. I am elated and very much looking forward to working with the student-athletes, coaches, alumni and staff.”
Hiltner spent the last year as an assistant commissioner and senior woman administrator for Indianapolis-based GLVC. She worked with 17 Division II institutions to validate National Letters of Intent, review institutional self-study guides and helped with 18 conference championships. She also was the liaison to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and organized SAAC professional development and community service engagement activities.
Before joining GLVC, Hiltner worked in a variety of positions at Colorado Mesa University from 2004 through 2011. She worked with the Maverick Wrestling Camps before moving on to be the camp coordinator for the athletic department. She was the ticket manager for the NCAA Division II Central Region Baseball Tournament in 2009, taught introduction to higher education in the 2010 and 2011 fall semesters and was a graduation and registration specialist for the Colorado Mesa University Registrar’s Office during the 2010-11 academic year.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in management in 2006 from Colorado Mesa University. She graduated from Limon High School in 2003. Hiltner is active in the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators.
