S4SC: Drexel SMTSU Announces 2nd Annual Sport for Social Change Conference

The Drexel Sport Management Student Union (SMTSU) is pleased to announce details for the second annual Sport for Social Change Conference.

Capitalizing on the success of the first edition of the conference last October, the SMTSU will hold the Sport for Social Change Conference on Friday, Nov. 14, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held in the Academic Bistro on the sixth floor of the Paul Peck Problem Solving and Research Center (aka Academic Building) on the corner of 33rd and Race St.

Holding the Sport for Social Change Conference in the Academic Bistro offers a unique opportunity to bring together all of the disciplines housed in the new Center for Hospitality and Sport Management. Students from Drexel’s culinary arts and hospitality programs will be preparing and serving all three of the meals during the event: breakfast, lunch and appetizers.

Just like last year, the event will be FREE and open to all.

We, however, do not want to reveal too many great details at one time. That’s why this week we will be releasing three of our highly-anticipated speakers, one each day from Tuesday to Thursday. So, stay tuned for even more!

As always, putting on an event like the Sport for Social Change Conference could not be accomplished without tremendous help. The SMTSU would like to thank Drexel Sport Management, the Center for Hospitality and Sport Management and Dr. Ellen Staurowsky. Without them, the event would not have even reached the point it’s at today.

Last year at the first annual Sport for Social Change Conference, the Drexel SMTSU hosted Patrick Hruby (then-Sports on Earth), Eli Wolff (Paralympics), GO! Athletes and Craig Cassey Jr., Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation and Dr. Eric Zillmer with James "Bruiser" Flint.
