A Milwaukee, WI native, Judith Sweet graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1969 majoring in physical education and mathematics. After earning two masters degrees, Sweet began her career as a teacher and coach at Newcomb College and Tulane University. In 1975, Sweet was appointed Director of Athletics at the University of California-San Diego becoming the first woman to head a combined men's and women's intercollegiate athletics program. In 1991, Sweet was elected President of the NCAA, the first woman to serve in this prestigious position.
