Lori Jancik enters her second year as Director of Student-Athlete Engagement. Jancik comes to Athletics following a two-year stint in the college's Office of Development and External Affairs.

Most recently, in addition to her post at Development and External Affairs, she had been an adjunct instructor in Siena's History Department. Jancik has a wealth of experience at Capital District colleges and universities, having also served in administrative capacities at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (2001-04) and at Albany Law School (2004-05).

Jancik oversees the department's athletic support services and life skills programs, working in conjunction with academic advisor Gail Picillo and life skills coordinator Ellen Howe. In addition, she actively promotes and develops academic enrichment opportunities for Siena's student-athletes, including internships, participation in undergrad research, independent study, and original programming.

A graduate of Butler University with a double major in History and International Studies, Jancik earned a fellowship at the University of Maryland, where she completed her Master's degree in French History. She also obtained her New York State Teacher Certification at Siena in 2008. To encourage student-athletes to avail themselves of extracurricular academic and professional pursuits, she draws upon her experience in Washington, DC, as a policy analyst for a Japanese trade association and as the Special Projects Coordinator for the four international museums within the Smithsonian Institution.

Her husband, Bruce Eelman, is an Associate Professor of History at Siena. Lori can often be found at Siena home games trying to keep their three-year-old daughter, Elinor, off the field or court.
