Global Sport Faculty Cross Talk
Paola Boivin, Digital Director of the Cronkite News Sports Bureau at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, spoke about her recent experience as a member of the College Football Playoff selection committee. Dr. Allison Ross, Assistant Research Professor in ASU’s School of Community Resources & Development, discussed her research on how leisure and physical activity can strengthen a community, and the role of physical and social environments in this process.
This was Global Sport Institute's first Faculty Cross-Talk to take place at the Downtown campus, and was held in the Beus Center for Law and Society, room 544. The general format for the free events include a catered lunch, two faculty speakers, Q & A, and a designated time and format for idea-exchange and building collaborative, cross-disciplinary partnerships between faculty, graduate students, and other interested scholars and practitioners.
Faculty and graduate students from all disciplines are always welcome. The goal of these events are to foster an environment for cross-disciplinary engagement. Guests are encouraged to attend the entire event, but are also welcome to attend for a portion as their schedules allow.
