Notre Dame, Ind. – Lisa Deibler, assistant athletics director for compliance and recruiting this past year at Boston College and a 1996 University of Notre Dame graduate, has joined the Notre Dame athletic administration as assistant athletics director for compliance.

Deibler spent the 2004-05 academic year as an assistant athletic director at Boston College and the four previous years at the University of North Carolina, where she was director of compliance from 2000-04. She earlier served as assistant director of compliance at North Carolina (1998-2000), and also was a graduate intern in the office of the Tar Heels’ director of athletics (1997-98), and a game operations graduate assistant for North Carolina (1996-97). She also was an instructor for two years in the Department of Exercise and Sport Science at North Carolina.

A native of Hamburg, Pa., Deibler is a 1996 graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where she received Phi Beta Kappa, Psi Chi, Summa Cum Laude and Dean’s Honor List accolades. She received her master of arts degree in sports administration from North Carolina in 1998 and completed the executive education program at the Sports Management Institute in 2003.
