2020 ASHE Pre-Conference Forum on College Athletics

Raising Athlete Voices: College Athlete Activism and Free Speech

ASHE Annual Meeting

COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and NCAA athlete name image likeness (NIL) policies and state legislation are shaping college athletics in unprecedented ways. This pre-conference workshop centers the voices of college athletes in the changes that directly impact them. From monetary value with their NIL, to mobilizing over Black Lives Matter, to speaking up about their health and safety, this forum will focus on strategies to support college athlete voices in activism and free speech.

Now in its 11th year, the Pre-Conference Forum on College Sports engages the ASHE community on the issues of the relationship between intercollegiate athletics and higher education. For more information, contact the Center for Leadership in Athletics: claresch@uw.edu
