Meet D'Juan Epps

our executive director

After his own collegiate basketball career, D’Juan knew he wanted to impact the world of sports for good. His experience in startup athletics organizations and as an athletic director only reinforced his passion for positively impacting as many people as possible, working in new spaces, and thinking outside of the box to solve problems. Through AIF, he plans to use those skills to create a program that develops the whole student-athlete, prepares them for life after sport, and allows them to thrive in their purpose.

As a former Vanderbilt employee who has a great rapport with current university leadership, employees, students, and fans, he loves generating support that creates meaningful opportunities for student-athletes and our community. D’Juan is married to Megan Epps. They have two sons, Carter and Roman, and one daughter, Chloe. He enjoys spending time with his family, fostering change within higher education and sports, and serving on nonprofit boards to share his time, talent, and resources.
