(ISSSSC) In July, a research team led by Ted Butryn, interim founding director of the ISSSSC and SJSU kinesiology professor, was invited to Los Angeles to participate in the inaugural Sports and the Role Societal Issues Play event in coordination with the ESPN Sports Humanitarian Awards. Butryn, along with fellow SJSU Department of Kinesiology faculty members Vernon Andrews, Cole Armstrong and Matthew Masucci, moderated breakout sessions of corporate social responsibility professionals from numerous pro teams, leagues and corporate partners, and then delivered a presentation entitled “Corporate Social Responsibility in the Age of Athlete Activism” to the 40 attendees. They recently submitted an article based on their experiences to the Sport Management Education Journal.
