Title: Hot Topics in Athletics
Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2021 
Time: 1:00 - 2:00 pm Eastern
Presenter: ACUA & Baker Tilly
Speakers: Katlyn Andrews, Colleen Lewis

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has impacted higher education institutions both fundamentally and financially. In March 2020 as institutions across the country transitioned to a remote learning environment, intercollegiate athletic seasons were cut short or cancelled. Since then, athletic programs have had to adapt to a new environment filled with uncertainty, financial shortcomings, and regulatory considerations.‎

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

1.    Assess the type of financial and revenue challenges that exist in intercollegiate athletics that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

2. Evaluate financial, regulatory, and reputational risks associated with cutting athletic programs in response to financial challenges.

3.  Discuss how internal audit can support the institution in its assessment of athletic policies and procedures.
