Faculty member: Ann Strahle, PhD, Assistant Professor, Communication
I am thrilled to be the Faculty Partner for women’s basketball here at UIS. As an Indiana native, basketball is in my blood as my family traveled to high school and college games every weekend from babyhood until now, as I travel with my two boys. UIS is extremely fortunate to have a wonderful women’s team, and one that will continue to do well as UIS continues its growth within the GLVC. I hope that this partnership helps to strengthen the bonds between athletics and academics in the years to come, and I am excited to be a part of that.
Coach: Chad Oletzke, Head Coach, Women’s Basketball
We are excited to add Ann Strahle to our women’s basketball program family. Her commitment and support of the overall student-athlete collegiate experience is very impressive. As a result, she will provide yet another avenue of guidance to our student-athletes for both academic and personal growth. The value she places on academics, community service and school spirit parallels the expectations of our program and will serve as a fantastic role model as a result. We look forward to welcoming Dr. Strahle and the positive impact she will have on our student-athletes.
