UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — One major change that has shifted the landscape of collegiate athletics is the NCAA’s new name, image and likeness (NIL) policy that went into effect earlier this year.

The virtual event is set for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27, with no registration cost. Penn State vice president for Intercollegiate Athletics Sandy Barbour will headline the panel discussion.

Sports Group; Vern Squier, CBICC president and CEO; and Matt Stolberg, Penn State associate athletic director for compliance, also will share insight as part of the panel discussion.
