Advancing Equity Through College Sports

The course work for CCHE 620 (Programs for Access and Opportunity in Higher Education)included the development of a hypothetical program proposal to address inequity in an area that relates to my own professional experience. Inspired by the 2021 basketball championship media frenzy exposing the inequities between the men's and women's basketball tournaments, the Equity Program or "eProgram" proposal presents a strategy to engage the member institutions in identifying equity initiatives for athletic departments that focus on inclusive staffing decisions and equity between men's and women's student-athlete experiences.
