Ms. Baker-Watson oversees 23 varsity sports which compete at the NCAA Division III level in addition to the intramural and club sports programs and is just the ninth DePauw director of athletics in the last 88 years.

Since arriving at DePauw in 2012, Baker-Watson has played a significant role in the development of the Athletics and Recreation Facilities Master Plan and in 2014, DePauw completed Phase I of the Plan, totaling $26 million in improvements to the Lilly Center and the Athletics Campus. She has also overseen the transition of men’s and women’s lacrosse to NCAA varsity status and established a new logo system for athletics. In June 2015, Baker-Watson also assumed the role of Associate Vice President for Campus Wellness managing a portion of DePauw Health, a collaborative relationship between DePauw University and Hendricks Regional Health to provide health and wellness services to all students.

In 2018, Baker-Watson was named NCAA Division III Administrator of the Year by Women Leaders in College Sports and was named a Community Award Winner by the Indiana Youth Services Association for her work on DePauw’s campus with the “Make Good Decisions” campaign which promotes the Indiana Lifeline Law.
