Movie Screening "The Business of Amateurs"

Wednesday, October 12, 2016
3:00pm – 6:00pm

Stamford Campus
Gen Ed Auditorium (Room A1)

The NCAA is the face for college athletics, and it generates billions of dollars every year for the top universities in the United States. “The Business of Amateurs” is the first documentary that challenges the NCAA from the perspective of former student-athletes. Director Bob DeMars, a former USC football player, focuses on student-athlete rights and the key players at the center of the topic, and systematically points out the hypocrisy and injustices that, in some cases, are life or death issues. Film followed by a discussion with panel members representing the medical field, the university administration, student-athletes, and legislative communities.
