Craig Kaufman enters his fifth year as the Director of Sports Information at Mount Ida College in the fall of 2017.

A native of Peabody, Mass., Kaufman came to Mount Ida after two years as a graduate assistant at Endicott College, where he served as the primary contact for nine sports and also received his Master’s Degree in Athletic Administration. He covered an Endicott baseball team that reached the championship game of the NCAA Division III New England Regional in Harwich, Mass., where he also served as an official scorer for three years.

Before returning to the North Shore, Kaufman served a year at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he was responsible for 10 of the Engineer’s sports, and also sat on the steering committee for the 2010 NEWMAC Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships and MIT’s 150th Anniversary convocation and served as tournament director for the NEWMAC men’s tennis tournament.

After graduating from Tufts in 2009 with a degree in English, he stayed with the Jumbos as a Sports Information intern, providing coverage of the men’s and women’s soccer and women’s volleyball teams. He was the on-site reporter to both the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) and the NCAA as Tufts hosted both the conference and regional volleyball tournaments.

In January of 2010, Kaufman left Massachusetts to take the job as Assistant Sports Information Director at Louisiana College in Pineville, La. He served as the primary contact for a nationally ranked women’s basketball team and the top-ranked softball team in the country for eight weeks straight, while also working with the men’s basketball and baseball teams. A member of both CoSIDA and ECAC-SIDA, Kaufman will serve as co-host of the 2019 ECAC-SIDA annual workshop in Framingham, Massachusetts.

Kaufman also serves as the publicist for the New England Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (NEILA), and was a three-year official scorer and media relations staff member for the NCAA Division III New England baseball regional. Other work includes serving as Communications Coordinator of the Bay State Games in 2012, spending three seasons as the Boston Bruins correspondent for hockey legend Stan Fischler’s weekly magazine, The Fischler Report, and working two summers as the official scorer for the North Shore Navigators in Lynn, Mass., 2010 champions of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL).
