Assume you are a collegiate student-athlete at a four year institution and serving on an advisory committee through the athletic department. Your college president is proposing the elimination of athletics on campus, and has called a meeting with the advisory committee to hear arguments for or against the proposal. Write 3-5 page paper supporting your position by referencing evidence from the required students and other research. You should also utilize your understanding of the historical perspective of collegiate athletic governance and society’s influences, as well as the purpose ( if there is one) you believe athletics has within higher education.
