Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) August 12, 2016
Evolution Labs announced today that East Tennessee State University has adopted its SA360 platform as a required part of its student-athlete experience across all of its men’s and women’s NCAA teams. SA360 provides student-athletes with engaging mobile app and web-based content on topics ranging from health and wellness to avoiding risk behavior, to assessing and improving their academic skills. ETSU joins other top intercollegiate athletic departments that have integrated the platform into their core programming, including Louisiana State University, Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Maryland.
“The university and the athletic department are committed to fostering students’ success as scholars, athletes and citizens,” said Dr. Richard Sander, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at ETSU. “SA360 uses smart technology to deliver content in a manner that’s more compelling and convenient to student-athletes, while enabling the athletic department to provide timely support and advice throughout the academic year. SA360 can help student-athletes whether they’re on campus or traveling to an away game.”
SA360 covers important success topics, including mental health, physical fitness, study and test-taking skills, time management skills, drug and alcohol use, sexual assault, NCAA compliance and career preparedness. It employs pulse surveys, social media, interactive self-tests and digital video to keep students returning for regular updates. In addition, the platform can be configured to work as part of an existing course or as an independent required curriculum.
“ETSU is extremely forward-thinking in their efforts to support student-athletes,” said Peter Kraft, CEO at Evolution Labs. “SA360 will enable ETSU to strengthen its engagement with student-athletes and increase their likelihood of further their success both on and off the field.”
