Mike Lorenzen, PhD

Dr. Mike Lorenzen is the Assistant Athletic Director for Student-Athlete Leadership and Development and Adjunct Professor of Sports Management at Georgetown University, where he teaches leadership, team dynamics, and the business of college athletics. Though he has pursued a few other jobs (intelligence analyst, management consultant, youth pastor, gymnastics clinician) on the side and a variety of semi-relevant graduate degrees along the way, his guiding mission is to be an influence in the lives of young people. Through a long and winding faith journey, a focus on social justice has emerged as both a vocational and avocational priority. Mike has had the opportunity to experience the wonders of the CSJ through advising the ABSO Board and the Magis Trip to Peru in Summer 2015. As his appreciation for Jesuit approaches to social justice grows, he is particularly grateful for opportunities to expand the engagement of athletics with Georgetown’s social justice mission in a variety of ways.
