New Course: Baseball and Educational Leadership


Contributed by Ellen J. Staurowsky

The Department of Sport Management and Media is presenting a new course this fall on baseball and educational leadership, in association with the fall symposium entitled Baseball and Educational Leadership: Finding Common Ground in the American Game.

The symposium will take place on Friday and Saturday, October 8-9, 2004, at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.

This interactive seminar on educational leadership and professional excellence will feature several speakers, including Myles Brand, president of the National Collegiate Athletic Association; Len Elmore, ESPN analyst; and others who will discuss issues related to professional leadership, ethical decision making, and the multiple equity issues that exist with regard to race, gender, socioeconomic class, and special needs. There are no prerequisites for this class. Only matriculated Ithaca College students are eligible to enroll.

Instructor: Ellen J. Staurowsky, Professor, Department of Sport Management and Media, Hill Center Office #11, ext. 4-1730, e-mail

Dates and Times: Friday, October 8, 6:00-9:00 p.m., and Saturday, October 9, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Registration: Because this minicourse is being offered in association with the symposium, the registration process is different from other registration. Here are the steps to follow:

Notice: For full-time students enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 17 credits, enrollment in this course will not result in any additional tuition charges. However, if you are a part-time student enrolled in under 12 credits or a student currently enrolled in 18 credits or more, a tuition charge of $790 will be assessed.

Course Obligations: Students will be assigned several readings prior to the class starting on October 8. The class will meet once in the fall at a mutually agreed upon time.
