Bodensteiner Named To NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee

Notre Dame senior associate athletics director to serve five-year term, beginning with 2016-17 season.

Jill Bodensteiner serves as Senior Associate Athletics Director in the areas of compliance, policy management and legal affairs. She made the move to the athletics department in July 2009, following 12 years with the Notre Dame Office of the General Counsel, including extensive work with athletics issues. In her current role, she serves as the athletics liaison to the General Counsel's office, and plays an extensive role in national, University and departmental policy issues. In addition, Bodensteiner oversees a compliance office that works with student-athletes, coaches, administrators and others to educate and facilitate a culture of compliance and integrity.

In August 2013, Bodensteiner began assisting athletics director Jack Swarbrick with the department's unique sport administration program by providing professional development and oversight to the 22 staff members who serve as sport administrators for the 26 intercollegiate athletics programs at Notre Dame. In addition, Bodensteiner serves as the sport administrator for the nationally-prominent women's basketball program, assisting coach Muffet McGraw's squad on an administrative basis.

From 2011-15, Bodensteiner served on the NCAA's Committee on Women's Athletics, which is charged with providing leadership and assistance to the association in its efforts to provide equitable opportunities, fair treatment and respect for all women in all aspects of intercollegiate athletics.

In September 2016, Bodensteiner will begin a five-year term on the NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship Sport Committee, becoming the first Notre Dame representative (and fourth from an ACC institution) to serve on the 10-person group, which is charged with, among many duties, the selection, seeding and bracketing for the annual NCAA Women's Basketball Championship.

Before joining the Notre Dame Office of the General Counsel in 1997, Bodensteiner specialized in employment litigation as an associate at two law firms, Seyfarth Shaw in Chicago and Bryan Cave LLP in St. Louis. A member of the bar in Indiana and Illinois, she also clerked for the Honorable Catherine Perry, a United States District Court judge in St. Louis.

Bodensteiner received her bachelor's degree in psychology and sociology from Notre Dame, her juris doctorate from Washington University Law School in St. Louis, and her MBA from Notre Dame's nationally-ranked Mendoza College of Business. A native of Valparaiso, Indiana, she now makes her home in South Bend.
