ALLIANCE, Ohio – Lori Braa, assistant professor of human performance and sport business, will present the LINC Lecture at noon on Tuesday, March 28
in the Newbold Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center. She will present “Aggression On and Off the Field of Play: A Survey of Student-Athletes’ Behavior and Perspectives.”

There are few topics in American society that are more popular than sports, both professional and collegiate. As sport in our society continues to gain momentum, it makes sense that level of physical aggression and violence among competitors both on and off the field increases. While certain levels of aggression are acceptable and expected in various sport performance, demands on athletes have many questioning the fine line between motivation and aggression both on and off the field.

Braa earned her Ph.D. in sport administration from the University of Northern Colorado in 2011. Before completing her degree, she worked as the recreation manager for the City of Farmington, New Mexico. She also spent over 13 years as a collegiate athletic administrator, working at Messiah College in Pennsylvania, Colorado Mesa University in Colorado, and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) national office in Indianapolis, IN. Her research interests includes student-athlete matriculation, retention, and academic success throughout their college career and beyond. 

Lunch begins at noon in the Newbold Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center. The program will begin at 12:20 p.m. and end at 1 p.m. Each luncheon costs $10 to attend. Advanced reservations are required. To make a reservation, contact Angi Swonger at (330) 823-6063 or linc@mountunion.edu
