Paul Harris
Associate Professor of Education

Should Black athletes just shut up and dribble? Does eligible mean ready? How might we utilize sport to promote the academic, social-emotional, and career development of Black student athletes? We will address these and many other questions about the experience of Black student athletes through synchronous and asynchronous small and large group discussions, individual research, and conversation with community stakeholders.
