(Jan. 19, 2010)--The UTSA Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs will host a lecture by Richard E. Lapchick, human rights activist, pioneer for racial equality, internationally recognized expert on sports issues and scholar at 7 p.m., Wednesday Jan. 20 in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the UTSA Main Campus. The event is free and open to the public.
An expert on sports issues, Lapchick has appeared numerous times on "Nightline," "Good Morning America," "Face the Nation," "The Today Show," "ABC World News," "NBC Nightly News," "CBS Evening News," CNN and ESPN.
Lapchick helped found the Center for the Study of Sport in Society in 1984 at Northeastern University. He served as director for 17 years and is now director emeritus. The center has attracted national attention to its pioneering efforts to ensure the education of athletes from junior high school through the professional ranks.
The center's Project TEAMWORK was called "America's most successful violence prevention program" by public opinion analyst Lou Harris. It won the Peter F. Drucker Foundation Award as the nation's most innovative nonprofit program and was named by the Clinton administration as a model for violence prevention. The center's MVP gender violence prevention program has been so successful with college and high school athletes that the U.S. Marine Corps adopted it in 1997.
A prolific writer, Lapchick's 10th book was published in November 2001 with a foreword by Muhammad Ali. Lapchick is a regular columnist for The Sports Business Journal. He has written more than 450 articles and has given more than 2,600 public speeches.
