Electronic sports (esports), also known as competitive video and computer gaming, continues to see increasing popularity at both the professional and amateur levels.  With swift industry growth in the past year alone, there have been some apparent growing pains, especially related to the governance and regulation of esports at the collegiate level.

Are you wondering what exactly esports is?  Or, are you considering whether your school should be offering esports programming to your students?  This webinar will present a primer on this exciting and dynamic industry, provide insights into how educational institutions are already incorporating esports programs on their campuses, and discuss legal and other campus implications – including considerations such as how, if at all, Title IX plays into this area and student conduct issues to be mindful of as esports continues to grow and evolve in education.
