blankDr. Kevin Deitrick
Dr. Kevin Deitrick, in his seventh year in the Athletics Student Services Department, works extensively with the men's basketball program.
In his current position, the Pittsburgh native works one-on-one with each men's basketball student-athlete in providing a blueprint for a successful academic career.
Deitrick, who has a wealth of experience as an academic administrator at the high school level, assists student-athletes in making the transition to college life, choosing a major field of study and making progress toward a degree.
Deitrick came to Duquesne after spending 10 years as an administrator, assistant athletic director, coach and social studies teacher. He held those various positions while working in the highly regarded Upper St. Clair and North Allegheny School Districts.
A graduate of Canevin High School, Deitrick completed his bachelor's degree in history and education at Washington & Jefferson in 1993. He earned his master's in history and his doctorate in instructional leadership from Duquesne.
Athletics and academics have always played a role in the Deitrick family. Kevin's late father, Richard - in addition to being a varsity letterwinner in football, basketball and baseball at the University of Pittsburgh from 1950-53 - became the first Pitt football player to earn Academic All-America honors when he was named in 1952.
Dr. Deitrick resides in Pittsburgh.
