Athletics & Recreation Campus Advocate

Why is it important to you to be a HeForShe Faculty Advocate?

I feel that personally and as a department we should play a key role in this issue, and that we have a platform will help raise the awareness of gender inequities. As with the university’s approach, I feel that our department’s goals of providing increased funding for female student athlete athletic financial awards (AFAs), increased funding for female coaching leadership and development, and increased opportunities for female specific recreational & wellness programming that we can work to address the issues now and through an evolution that will become a long-term sustainable approach.
