College Athletic Directors Create Social Justice Initiative

Brock Fritz Headshot

College athletic directors have developed a nationwide platform to help each other work toward equality within the collegiate landscape.

The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics announced Monday that it had created the Social Justice in College Athletics Initiative to provide “valuable resources for collegiate athletics administrators across the country during a time of transformative change in history, as the Association collectively aims to listen, learn and strive for equality, turning words into actions moving forward.”

The recent push toward social justice and equality stems from the May death of George Floyd while he was in the custody of Minneapolis police.

The Social Justice in College Athletics Initiative is intended to continue this move toward equality.
