With the thrill of March Madness in full swing, the dotEDU hosts are focusing their policy talk on all things sports. Linda Livingstone, president of basketball powerhouse Baylor University, joins the podcast to break down how the NCAA is working to change with the times, its recent shift on issues such as name, image and likeness (NIL), and how the recently adopted NCAA constitution will affect student-athletes moving forward. Jon, Sarah, and Mushtaq also discuss how institutions are helping Ukrainian students studying in the U.S., as well as the FY 2022 appropriations bill recently signed by President Biden and what that means for higher ed.
