College Football, COVID and Dollars: the NCAA’s Ethical Obligations to Student-Athletes
October 22, 2020 at 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree
About the Program:
A significant number of universities have opted to cancel in person classes while simultaneously deciding to bring their student-athletes back to campus to practice and play football. Such action, in the midst of the continued COVID-19 pandemic, has led to renewed debate about the role of the NCAA as the gatekeeper for college football in the modern era. Is the NCAA just like any business trade association in which the end goal is to maximize profits? Or, are there other stakeholder considerations, specifically those of student-athletes, that the NCAA is compelled to factor into its decision-making process? Join sports law Professor and expert, Marc Edelman, and former Chairman of Neuberger Berman, Larry Zicklin, for a lively discussion on the role of the NCAA and the future of college football.
