The Athletics Department of the Future
Wolverton, Brad
Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, v73 n3 p48-50 Nov 2007
In the hyper-competitive world of intercollegiate athletics, where programs vie to win national titles, attract talent, and build the best facilities, keeping a close eye on trends and emerging practices is a necessity. With that in mind, "The Chronicle of Higher Education" asked more than three dozen experts to describe the changes they expect to see in athletics departments in the next five to 10 years. In academic issues, experts discussed changes in accountability, jock majors, faculty involvement, integrated sports programs, and the NCAA's Academic Progress Rate. In athletics culture, experts examined changes in international students, off-court behavior, summer duty, co-ed teams, and emerging sports. In administration, experts described changes in specialization, smarter office designs, impact of technology, faculty improvements, and minority hiring. Finally, in finances, experts explored changes in shrinking programs, personalized marketing, female donors, television ratings and revenue, ticket revenue, and internet exposure.
