Paul Slovenski
Position: Head Coach

Prior to the Slovenski era, the MIT women's track team never broke into the top 15 in New England. Now under his control, the team has never finished out of the top 10. During the six years he's been at the helm, the indoor team is 62-23 and the outdoor team is 23-13, easily making him the winningest coach in MIT women's track history.

Individuals under Slovenski's tutelage have rewritten the record books and his teams continue to improve year after year. In 2001, he was named the NEWMAC Coach of the Year.

Slovenski's success as a coach is directly related to his success as an athlete. He was an All-America pole vaulter as an undergraduate at Bates College where he also played soccer and earned a total of 12 varsity letters during his career. He was named the Bates Male Athlete of the Year each of his four years at the college.

Paul joined the MIT staff in 1990 as a physical education instructor and assistant coach of men's soccer and track & field. In 1997, he was promoted to Assistant Professor of Physical Education. Slovenski has also worked as an assistant director for MIT's summer day camp and assistant coordinator of intramural programs.

In addition to his bachelor's degree, Paul holds a masters degree in Human Movement, Sports and Leisure from Boston University.
