    Join us for a fascinating evening with a leader who is at the center of higher education, athletics and business. Each year NCAA student athletes receive $2.7 billion in scholarships, not to mention healthcare and academic support.  At the same time, challenges and lawsuits could change college athletics and higher education as we know it.
     
    Hear President Emmert's update and views on topics such as:
    • The courtroom vs. the basketball court: will college sports survive legal threats?
    • 21st Century College Sports – what does that look like?
    • Amateurism and a $10.8 billion media contract - a contradiction?
    Dr. Mark A. Emmert G'76, G'83 became the fifth president of the NCAA in October 2010.  Prior to assuming his current role, Emmert had been president of the University of Washington and was chancellor of Louisiana State University from 1999 to 2004.
     
    During his tenure at the NCAA, Emmert has been lauded for raising initial eligibility standards for prospective student-athletes and academic standards for those in college to promote long term success long after their playing days are over. Most recently, Emmert has moved forward current reforms in Division I to improve the overall support for student-athletes while they’re students.
     
    Dr# Emmert is a Fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and was previously an American Council on Education Fellow, and a J. W. Fulbright Administrative Fellow.  He has written extensively on higher education and public administration over a career that spans the last 30 years.
     
    A Washington native, President Emmert earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Washington and has both a master’s degree and a Ph.D. in public administration from Syracuse University. Emmert is a life member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a member of the Higher Education Working Group on Global Issues. He is the former chair of the Executive Group of the Worldwide Universities Network and served on the National Security Education Advisory Board.
