#374 Could an overall academic experience of student athletes be enhanced?

Essentially all major research universities also have strong athletic programs which means research and athletic communities are supposedly sharing their academic experiences. Well, not necessarily. While research faculty and students are mostly well aware of the ups and downs of the teams and individual athletes representing university, the latter are mostly are not given an opportunity to learn about  research activities on campus.


There are things that can be easily done to mediate this situation. I have no doubts researchers would be ready to take time to introduce to the students athletes their research and research facilities on campus. No class schedule, no credits, no mandatory attendance, etc., just an opportunity to learn what’s going on in the buildings  they might be walking by every day without knowing what is being done inside.
