Postsecondary Pathways | Name, Image, Likeness: How the NCAA's rule change affects Institutions of Higher Education and Their Students
On June 30, 2021, the NCAA approved an interim policy that allows student athletes to make money off of their “name, image, and likeness (NIL),” effective July 1. The interim policy rescinds long-standing rules that prohibited student athletes from making money through endorsements and other ways of selling and monetizing the rights to their NIL. Over the past few years, governors in 28 states have signed legislation or issued executive orders that allow student athletes to profit off the use of their NIL. The webinar will feature a discussion by panelist regarding how NIL has altered the postsecondary education landscape, what this means for future student athletes, and how states are using policies and practices to support and protect students.
