Beauregard eases back into administrative duties

Feb. 12, 2003

KALAMAZOO -- Western Michigan University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Kathy Beauregard is set resume her post on a half-time basis Feb. 11.

Beauregard has been on an extended medical leave since Aug. 26 and is recovering from back surgery. She plans to resume her work at home and will begin spending some time in the office, but will greatly restrict her hours and on-campus presence.

"I'm still definitely in the healing process but am eager to get back to the day-to-day activities of running the division," says Beauregard. "I've been told it is critical that I limit my activities for a while to avoid the risk of a relapse, and I intend to be mindful of that advice and very cautious."

During her absence, David A. Corstange, senior associate director of athletics, has been serving as acting director. Corstange plans to move to a restricted schedule to address health issues in his own family.

"I'm really grateful to the leadership of the division for continuing, in my absence, to move forward with our mission and support of our student-athletes," Beauregard says. "I'm also deeply appreciative for the support the staff has provided me over the past few months."
