In 1929, the Carnegie Foundation issued a report detailing the major issues affecting college athletics. A number of the issues identified in the 1929 report still impact college athletics today. Issues associated with college athletics in 2019 include commercialization and the athletic arms race, recruiting violations, academic integrity problems, exploitation of minority athletes, a win at all costs attitude, unionization and fair compensation for athletes, Title IX and gender equity, college player violence and drug use, escalating coaching salaries, illegal behavior by coaches, sexual assault by athletes, athlete graduation rates, spiraling expenditures of college athletics, influence of television and the media, and the realignment of conferences. The purpose of this session is to explore issues that impact the future of college athletics from socio-cultural, economic, and ethical perspectives with the hope of shedding additional light on these issues and providing suggestions for their possible resolution in the future.
