Panel to Discuss Direction of NCAA at State Theatre

The NCAA and their governance of college athletics will be scrutinized and discussed by a group of nationally respected panelists at the State Theatre on Oct. 3rd at 7 p.m. The session, titled “The Future of the NCAA and Its Membership” will be presented by Penn State’s John Curley Center for Sports Journalism and moderated by Malcolm Moran, the director of the Curley Center.

The panelists include:

  • Gene Corrigan, a former NCAA president (1995-1997) who was also the commissioner of the ACC from 1987 to 1997 and the athletic director at Notre Dame.
  • Amy Perko, the executive director of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics.
  • R. Scott Kretchmar, a professor of exercise and sport science at Penn State who was an inaugural chair of the NCAA Scholarly Colloquium on College Sports.
  • Thomas O’Toole, the assistant managing editor for USA Today Sports.

“The unprecedented process that led to the sanctions against Penn State has inspired intense debate about the industry of college sports,” Moran said in a press release. “An examination of the NCAA mission is central to the Curley Center’s role as an advocate for transparency and reporting on athletic and academic reform.”

The event is free and open to the public.
