Boston College Implements RealResponse to Create an Empowering Student-Athlete Experience


RealResponse, the leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform for athletic organizations, is pleased to announce a partnership with Boston College. The partnership highlights Boston College’s commitment to prioritizing student-athlete health, safety and experiences by giving student-athletes a medium to communicate with their administration confidentially and in real time.

“It is always important for our student-athletes to have true access to our administration and to have the opportunity to share their thoughts, especially during challenging times,” said Pat Kraft, William V. Campbell Director of Athletics at Boston College. “At previous institutions, we have used RealResponse and implementing it as a resource for our student-athletes was an immediate priority for me at BC. To achieve our goal of creating empowering experiences for our student-athletes, we must stay connected to their needs and concerns. RealResponse will help us be responsive and add tremendous value to our student-athletes, coaches and administrators.”

Boston College joins more than 50,000 NCAA Division 1 student-athletes using RealResponse to share feedback with coaches and administrators. Student-Athletes can use RealResponse to anonymously report issues surrounding social injustice, COVID-19 policy infractions, misconduct, hazing, sexual harassment and more.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Boston College and work again with Pat Kraft, an industry leader in advocacy for student-athletes,” said David Chadwick, founder of RealResponse. “In 2020, we saw unprecedented engagement from student-athletes, and as competition ramps back up this spring, it will only become more critical to have a safe medium to seek help when needed. Jocelyn Gates and Michael Harris have already hit the ground running and are making a big impact with their student-athletes. We’re excited about this partnership and to help facilitate a positive experience for all Eagle student-athletes.”
