The title of Dempsey's talk will be "Gender Equity, Amateurism and the Graduation Rates of Student-Athletes." The event is open to the University community.
Assoc. Prof. Paul Spagnoli (History), faculty representative to athletics, said the event is an ideal opportunity to learn more about subjects with a significance far beyond the sports pages.
"Dempsey's talk should be of interest to BC faculty because of the many contentious issues in which the NCAA is involved, from gender equity through initial eligibility," he said. "And because a generally well-regulated program like B C 's stands to benefit from the work of the NCAA, which seeks to maintain standards among all participants in intercollegiate athletics."
