Sport Ethics Debate

Sport Ethics Debate
Sport Ethics and Sport Administration Program

For 12 years, graduate students in the Sport Ethics course in the Sport Administration program have been participating and hosting a sport ethics debate directed by Associate Professor Sue Mullane, Ph.D.

The debate explores current topical issues in the area of Sport Ethics, and has included such topics as athletes and activism, genetic enhancement in sports, extreme sports, youth and high school sports, NCAA, NFL and other governance issues, and this year, Esports and sport gambling, among other topics.

The goal of the debate is for students to take the concepts and theories learned in class and apply them to real world situations.


The Sport Ethics Debate greatly impacts our graduate student’s knowledge and professional preparation for careers in the sport industry. The dedicated students from the Sport Ethics course have been busy this fall semester researching and preparing arguments for the debate, as well as, getting all the event details wrapped up to host a great event. Below are three ways you can help them.
