COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - University of Colorado Colorado Springs Athletic Director Steve Kirkham is excited to announce the addition of Erin Hiltner as the next Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance. Hiltner, a native of Limon, Colo., spent the last year at the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

"It feels great to be coming back home to Colorado with this opportunity to be at UCCS and part of the RMAC again," Hiltner said. "UCCS is such a remarkable campus and I feel so fortunate to be coming in at a time where a lot of great things are going on. I am elated and very much looking forward to working with the student-athletes, coaches, alumni, and staff."

Hiltner spent the last year as an Assistant Commissioner and Senior Woman Administrator for the GLVC. She worked with 17 Division II institutions to validate National Letters of Intent, review Institutional Self Study Guides and helped with 18 conference championships. Hiltner was also the liaison to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and organized SAAC professional development and community service engagement activities.

Hiltner worked in a variety of positions at Colorado Mesa University from 2004 through 2011. She worked with the Maverick Wrestling Camps before moving on to be the Camp Coordinator for the entire athletic department. Hiltner was the ticket manager for the NCAA Division II Central Region Baseball Tournament in 2009, taught Introduction to Higher Education in the 2010 and 2011 fall semesters and was a Graduation and Registration Specialist for the Registrar's Office during the 2010-11 academic year. She earned her bachelor's degree in management in 2006.

Hiltner is active in the National Association of Collegiate Women Athletics Administrators. She's attended several NCAA events, including the Sport Wagering In-service and the Student-Athlete Affairs Education Training Symposium.

"We are all happy to not only find a capable compliance administrator with terrific background but a Limon High School graduate too," Kirkham said. "I look forward to working closely with Erin to insure our department continues to be one that abides by the rules and helps our coaches succeed with successful student-athletes."
