This week Dave talks about the issues of recruitment and retention, highlighting some of the academic challenges of moving from high school to college. He provides information on an NCAA grant that EMU recently received to create a part-time position that will deal with student-athlete well-being, focusing in class attendance and academic progress, both of which are indicators of retention.
Inside Athletics is a weekly podcast hosted by Athletic Director Dave King. The podcast offers a synopsis of what is happening in EMU athletics, but also delves deeper into how athletics at EMU shapes lives and enhances college educations by positively impacting an athlete’s understanding of self, others, and God. Sports Information Director James De Boer is a regular guest with EMU coaches and athletes making appearances as well.
