Do Sports Build Character?

Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2012

The role of college athletics in character formation is the theme of a panel Thursday, Feb. 23, at noon, in the Santa Clara University Learning Commons. 

Join our panelists to discuss the issues:

  • Matthew Savage, SCU '12; Hackworth Fellow at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics; Member, SCU Cross Country and Track Teams
  • Professor Christopher Kulp, SCU Philosophy; World-Ranked Competitor, CrossFit Games; Mountain Climber
  • Zoe Kranzler, Academic Support Manager, SCU Athletics Department; Resident Minister, Alpha RLC; Former NCAA Athlete

The Ethics Center's Big Q Project, an online dialog on ethical issues for college students, also addresses the sports and character theme.  Our biweekly contest for a $100 Amazon gift certificate is being hosted on PolicyMic.
