Panelists examine the inconsistent performance of college faculty, sometimes successfully acting as guardians of academic integrity and tamping down on academic fraud in intercollegiate athletics and at other times, abdicating their guardian role by succumbing to significant internal pressures that allow the athletics enterprise to control institutional academic processes. Each of the speakers have been on the frontlines of the athletics/faculty interface, confronting the challenges and opportunities of the college athletics reform effort. Issues explored include structural predicates that might ensure integrity, faculty public disclosure of grading practices, the difference between academic counseling and doing athletes’ work for them, what faculty can do at the micro and macro level to address athletics issues, and where faculty think college sports will be in a decade.
