Melissa Dreisbach and Heather Pollock

Today on our program, meet Melissa Dreisbach and Heather Pollock. These two professors, with very different backgrounds, are intent on collaboration and innovation at the University of Akron. They’re experimenting with an “[Un]class” on social justice in sports – examining how athletes shape our views – to engage students in action-oriented solutions.

The University of Akron is piloting several [Un]classes each semester. You can learn more on the University of Akron website.

You can also follow the EXL Center where the [Un]class is housed on Instagram at @uakronexlcenter. Professor Pollock is active on the History Department’s Facebook page.
