Mike Roach is entering his 14th year as the Director of the Spartan Club in 2019-20. In 2018-19, the Spartan Club exceeded its annual scholarship fund for the sixth straight year. 

The 2015-16 athletic scholarship fund goal was $425,000 and the Spartan Club eclipsed that mark by raising a total of $425,329, an all-time high. Over the past five years, the Spartan Club has raised more cash and gifts in kind than any other five-year period in the program's history.

In addition, the Spartan Club and the Student-Athlete Advisory Council coordinated the True Spartan Challenge, a student-athlete giving campaign that saw 100 percent of UNCG student-athletes make a gift back to their team enrichment funds for the third consecutive year.

UNCG Athletics also received a historic gift during the 2015-16 fiscal year.  Dr. Nancy Vacc, a former UNCG professor, made a planned gift in the amount of $725,000 to establish the Vacc Women's Golf Scholarship Endowment for the women's golf program. As the second largest overall gift and the largest planned gift ever received by UNCG Athletics, the Vacc Women's Golf Endowment will provide the value of a full out of state scholarship for Women's Golf on an annual basis.

Roach came to UNCG in February of 2007 from Charlotte where he worked with the Athletic Foundation as the Director of the Athletic Annual Fund.  Prior to his work in Charlotte he was working at Wake Forest University as the Assistant Director of Law School Development. 
Roach graduated from Guilford College with a bachelor of science in 1994.  He was a three-year letterwinner on the basketball team from 1991-94.
Roach is an active member of NACDA and Crescent Rotary.  He is married to his wife Susan and they have two children, Lily and Jack.
