Monday, September 23, 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Ypsi Alehouse
124 Pearl St., Suite 100 Centennial Center, Ypsilanti, MI 48197

A strong athletics program can bring in cash, build student engagement, and generate publicity for colleges. But what impact does the investment in large-scale athletics have on the rest of a college? And what happens if it's not successful?

At the next Issues and Ale, Michigan Radio Morning Edition host Doug Tribou will discuss the price and payoff for smaller schools investing in big-time college sports.

Panelists at this event will include:

John U. Bacon - Sports commentator and New York Times bestselling author

Elizabeth Heinrich - University of Michigan Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director, Compliance and Student Development 

David Jesse - Detroit Free Press higher education reporter

Geoff Larcom - Executive Director-Media Relations, Eastern Michigan University

Issues and Ale is an event series from Michigan Radio designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing our area in an informal atmosphere. Stop by, have a drink, and join in the conversation.
