This interactive panel focused on athlete degree-completion—specifically how innovative approaches to education, including online options, can be used to increase access within this nontraditional population. In addition, we will examine how education can help athletes transition out of their playing careers, and onto a path to long-term success.
This event took place against the backdrop of the men's Pac-12 basketball tournament and Pac-12 Global. The Global Sport Institute created the Global University Sport Summit to explore the strategy, trends and impact of sports globalization at the collegiate level, both within and outside of the U.S.
Anita DeFrantz, a member of the International Olympic Committee and IOC Executive Board, discussed the impact of the Olympic Games with Victoria Jackson, sports historian and lecturer at the ASU School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies. This talk was in partnership with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

Presented by ASU's Center for Study of Race and Democracy
Long before #TakeAKnee protests, the movement against Native American mascots, derogatory team naming and cultural appropriation in sports proved a catalyst for discussion and debate about race and democracy in American culture. “More Than a Word” offers an inside look at these contentious issues through the campaign and legal cases against the Washington R*skins, and traces how racist terminology became embraced and beloved by sports teams and fans.
