Sexual assault is a problem in college athletics. What can the NCAA do? Only 3.3% of male students are athletes, but male student athletes are responsible for 19% of reported sexual assaults on campus. However, the NCAA, the primary governing board for college athletics, has no formal policy attaching sexually violent behavior to athletic eligibility. Recent graduate CC Carreras and Set the Expectation campaign founder Brenda Tracy share their stories and ask what can be done differently.

A Disappearing CommunityOne of the stories I was most excited about shooting this year was about a small library in Nantymoel, a village north of Bridgend in Wales. More than 500 public libraries, including Nantymoel, are closing or might close in England and Wales because of budget concerns. Local councils are legally required to provide library services. Needless to say, the closings are causing controversy.The deal, made with one of the directors of libraries for the county, was that the story not focus on the closing, but on preserving the place for the historical record. I agreed to this and thought it was an appropriately librarian-like approach. I planned to shoot a portrait of the library as it was, so it would be remembered when it closed. The director of the Berwyn Centre, where the library was housed, was thrilled, as were the librarians and patrons. Soon after I started shooting though, Mark Shephard, a local councilor, called and said I had to stop. He said the closing was too controversial to allow coverage. Initially I tried to pull the original piece together, but the footage wasn’t there. Ultimately I abandoned the portrait and edited the story how it happened, focusing on the closing after all.

Big Pit National Coal MuseumBig Pit National Coal Museum is one of the last working coal mines in Wales. But instead of producing coal, Big Pit has transformed into a museum, and the miners into tour guides and conservationists. Big Pit’s charm is in its authenticity, so as the miners get closer to retirement, the museum will have to figure out how to transform once again.
