University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez has been announced as a featured speaker for the Sport and Society Conference that is hosted by the school and the Green Bay Packers in May of next year. The event will span over three days between the 23rd and 25th of the month, and it is the fourth year in a row for this conference to occur. The purpose of the event is for students and local professionals alike to be able to gather in one place and network within the sports industry, and has been a huge success in past years. Alvarez is going to talk between 9 and 10:15 a.m on May 24th at the St. Norbert’s Walter Theater, and there is no charge and free for the public to join.
The Langeloth, Pennsylvania native first got involved with sports while he was attending the University of Nebraska where he played on the football team as a linebacker. In 1971 he began his coaching career at the high school level and didn’t work for a college institution until 1979 when he got an opportunity at the University of Iowa. Alvarez coached for Iowa until 1986 before going to Notre Dame for two years, but eventually found himself at the University of Wisconsin where he was the football team’s coach from 1990 through 2014. As of 2004 he has also been the school’s athletic director, and he still assumes that position.
Alvarez will be going to the University of Wisconsin campus next spring to be a part of the Sport and Society Conference, which should be a great chance for athletics-affiliated people to mingle and network.
