Issues & Ale: Go Big or Go Home - The Price and Payoff of College Sports
Monday, September 23, 6:30 – 8:00 PM
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
