Throwing a Hail Mary: Teaching Academic Success for Student-Athletes
Does one librarian + 30 football players = academic success? As the Academic Success Program for Student-Athletes enters its third year, Instruction Librarian and Assistant Professor Alex Gallin-Parisi will share her experiences developing and teaching a one-credit course designed to help incoming first-year student-athletes, particularly football players. This luncheon will highlight the program's interdepartmental and collaborative aspects, the course content, and its impact on students. Participants are encouraged to candidly discuss their questions, concerns, biases, and challenges regarding student-athletes at Trinity.
