A team of four Alfred State sport management  students recently competed in the prestigious 2013 College Sport Research Institution (CSRI) Undergraduate Student Case Study Competition in Chapel Hill, NC, on April 17. The annual competition is designed to provide select sport management programs with the opportunity to provide tangible solutions to contemporary issues in college sports. As part of the competition, the Alfred State team developed a solution paper containing a detailed analysis of conference realignment in college athletics and presented their findings and recommendations to a panel of expert judges in Chapel Hill.
Dr. Rhema Fuller , assistant professor, sport management, who served as the faculty advisor for the team had the following to say, “Participating in the competition was a great experience for our students and an even greater opportunity for our sport management program. To be one of only 13 schools in the nation selected to participate speaks volumes to the quality of Alfred State’s sport management program.”
Students on the Alfred State team were, from left, Steve Snaider of New York City; Shelby Gadsden of Olean; Josh Simons of Campbell; and Michael Durkin of Jeffersonville.
