Patricia ThomasINDIANAPOLIS – University of the District of Columbia Faculty Athletic Representative (FAR) Dr. Thomas Bullock is featured in the NCAA Champion Magazine Winter 2014 edition.

Executive Editor Brian Hendrickson's feature story, entitled "Taking on the job of dad, FAR steers dozens to success," appears on page 32 of the magazine issue and can be seen here.

The story focuses on the work Bullock has done through his self-established Georgetown Institute of College Preparation which helped hundreds of D.C.'s disadvantaged youths become academic stars. His mission continues as a math professor at UDC where he became the university's FAR after working with one of its student-athletes, which led several more to seek him out.

In addition to his full-time teaching responsibilities, Bullock is actively involved in campus leadership as he chairs the NCAA Compliance Committee and serves on the Athletic Advisory Board. He is also founder and director of many pre-college programs for D.C. youth as well as educational programs for teachers and administrators throughout the country. His programs' successes earned him the prestigious recognition as 2004 Washingtonian of the Year by Washingtonian Magazine.

"Tom Bullock is a phenomenal person and has made significant contributions to the Athletic Department and the University as a whole," Director of Athletics Patricia Thomas said. "He has done a terrific job as the Faculty Athletic Representative and on the NCAA Compliance Committee. We are grateful to Tom for his continued support."
