We hope that you will bring to this course your interests, experiences, and thoughts on college athletics. Discussion forums will be a key part of Sports and the University, as we ask you to weigh in on such issues as payments for college athletes, perception of women in university sports, and the future of athletics. You will have an opportunity to earn a Statement of Accomplishment for the course by taking quizzes on the course topics.

A truly interdisciplinary course, Sports and the University features experts in classics, literary studies, philosophy, Olympic coaching, academic advising, campus religious life, and gender studies. The course is also multimedia, featuring some experts in video lectures and some in audio interviews; the audio is available both within the course and as a companion podcast playlist.

We hope you will join us for an exciting investigation of this vital topic!
