Brenning appointed as new athletics director

Vice-President (Finance and Administration) Duncan Watt announced the appointment of Jennifer Brenning to the position of Director, Recreation and Athletics. Brenning has served as the Associate Director of Recreation and Athletics at Carleton since 2005.

Brenning is Carleton’s first female athletics director and she says she was attracted to the position because Carleton has a strong reputation for athletic excellence.

“Athletics enhances the overall student experience and provides school pride, spirit and visibility for Carleton. I look forward to working with other departments on campus to support the university’s mission and make Carleton’s athletic department the best in the country.”

Brenning brings over 20 years of athletic and administrative experience to her position.

As the associate director at Carleton University, she developed partnerships with Capital Sports Inc. and the Ottawa 67’s. Her efforts have resulted in the first annual Capital Hoops Classic and an increased profile for the new varsity hockey programs and summer camps.

Brenning holds a Masters in Sport Administration, Health Sciences and a Bachelor of Physical Education, Health Sciences from the University of Ottawa.
