Dr. Joe Luckey has been elected to be the next leader of the National Association of Academic Advisors for Athletics (N4A). A University of Memphis staff member since March 2002, he is the director of Athletic Academic Services and Academic Compliance.

Luckey has long been active in the N4A. He has been a faculty member for the group’s Professional Development Institute since it was created in 2005. He is also on N4A’s executive board and in 2009 was named Division Director for Professional Development. During the 2008-2009 academic year, he chaired the group’s strategic planning committee.

The N4A honored Luckey in 1999 with the Lan Hewlett Award, which recognizes an athletic academic counselor who has shown sustained profession service in academic advising while meeting the emerging needs of college student-athletes and gaining the support of coaches, faculty, and administrators.

As director of athletic academic advising at the University of Memphis, Luckey supervises a facility and a staff for that purpose. He is also responsible for the certification of NCAA eligibility for all student-athletes at the U of M, and he is one of the instructors for ACAD 1100, a class that gives new students an introduction to life at the University.

The University Provost’s Star Award was presented to Luckey in 2005 in recognition of his outstanding contributions toward achievement of the mission of the Division of Academic Affairs.

Luckey holds a B.A. degree in mathematics from the University of Dayton, a master’s degree in kinesiology and sports administration from Indiana University at Bloomington, and an Ed.D. degree in administration and supervision from Tennessee State University. He is married and has three sons.
