Cambridge, Mass. (June 14) -- Nick Jewell has been promoted to the position of manager of club sports, intramurals and sports camps, as announced by Dr. G. Anthony Grant, MIT director of athletics/DAPER department head. Jewell had served as the interim manager of club sports, intramurals and sports camps since December 2020.
"I am thrilled to announce Nick's promotion to the manager of club sports, intramurals and sports camps," said Dr. Grant. "He has done an outstanding job as our interim manager during the spring semester and has earned this well-deserved promotion. His enthusiasm, knowledge and innovative approach to providing participation opportunities for our students in this area make him the perfect fit to direct our club sports and intramural programs into the future."
Jewell first came to MIT in 2019 and worked as the administrative assistant for club sports, intramurals and sports camps. He arrived at MIT from nearby Suffolk University, where he worked as the student services coordinator for the INTO Suffolk University program during the 2018-19 academic year. In that role, he oversaw the transition of 200 international students with low-level English-speaking skills into full-time Suffolk University students, as well as organizing events, housing and academic advising. He was also very active within athletics, serving as the Club Ultimate Frisbee head coach at Wentworth University and as an intramural sports supervisor at Colleges of the Fenway.
"I am very excited to take on these roles and responsibilities as Manager of Club Sports and Intramurals," said Jewell. "When I was a college club sport athlete at Clemson, I was able to build a community, create life-long friendships, and travel the world playing the sport I love. I can't wait to provide that opportunity to others while also continuing to create fun and innovative intramural sports for students to enjoy."
Jewell earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Clemson University in 2013, where he was a psychology major with a concentration in human factors and a minor in parks, recreation and tourism management. He then went on to earn his Masters of Education at Clemson in 2017.
During his time as a student at Clemson, Jewell was an academic coach for student-athletes in the Spring 2017 semester, as well as the Club Ultimate Frisbee head coach from August 2013-May 2017.
