This presentation is a critical analysis of the NFL’s communication efforts to protect its reputation, but lessons learned from these crises can be applied to all organizations facing ethical dilemmas. How can we, as communication experts, best represent our organizations while balancing our social responsibility to the public? Best practices will be shared.

Dr. Rentner was instrumental in launching the NFL Journalism Sports Media Boot Camp at BGSU, a three-day workshop for current and recently retired NFL players transitioning from football to careers in media. This March marked the fifth boot camp. She is co-editor of the book, You Make the Call: Case Studies in Sports Communication, to be published by Routledge in 2018. The book includes a chapter that discusses ethical issues surrounding domestic violence in the NFL.

Please RSVP to and indicate if you are a member, a guest, or a student and if you plan to purchase breakfast.
