On July 1st, The Senate Bill 646: Intercollegiate Athlete Compensation and Rights went into effect. This Bill authorizes certain intercollegiate athletes to earn compensation for the use of their names, images, or likenesses (NIL). The bill also prohibits a postsecondary educational institution and other entities, institutions, and their employees from compensating intercollegiate athletes or prospective intercollegiate athletes for the use of their names, images, or likenesses.
Now the question is was this a good move or a bad move? Will College athletes still favor the love of the game and the alma mater vs. the money that comes from their NIL. Will NIL profit throw off the competitive balance? Will College athletes become instant millionaires?
The panelists spearheading this discussion are Corey Staniscia, External Affairs Director of Dreamfield, and Mary Giardina, Senior Associate AD/Administration and Chief of Staff/SWA at Florida Atlantic University. The event will be moderated by Joe Rose, radio personality on The Joe Rose Show on 560WQAM.
The event is free and open to the public. If you’d like to make a donation to support Village Square programming, you may do so when you register.
