Colgate Commits to Student-Athlete Health and Welfare with RealResponse Partnership


The country’s leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform lets administrators communicate with student-athletes to address their most pressing needs in real time.

HAMILTON, NY – Colgate Athletics is pleased to announce a partnership with RealResponse, the leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform for athletic organizations. During a challenging time for collegiate sports, Colgate has enlisted RealResponse to help its administration provide a first-class student-athlete experience.

“This spring semester is unlike anything we and our student-athletes have experienced before., With such an ambitious competition schedule, fewer in-person interactions, and COVID-19 continuing to serve up new challenges, it seemed likely that we needed another way to respond to our student-athletes’ needs and concerns,” said Dr. Nicki Moore, Colgate’s Vice President and Director of Athletics. “With RealResponse, we can give all student-athletes a confidential, real-time resource to share feedback on their experiences and, if needed, seek and receive help from our administration. We are committed to our student-athlete experience and we believe RealResponse will help us fulfill that mission.”

Colgate teams will join more than 50,000 NCAA Division I student-athletes using RealResponse to communicate with coaches and administrators. They can use RealResponse to anonymously report issues regarding mental health, social injustice, COVID-19 policy infractions, misconduct, hazing, sexual harassment, and more.

“We’re on track to witness the highest number of student-athlete outreaches in our company history, in the spring 2021 semester,” said David Chadwick, founder of RealResponse. “Nicki Moore, Juliana Smith, and the rest of the Colgate administration get it. Not only are they devoted to their student-athletes’ welfare, but they truly put their passion into action. We are honored to be a part of their initiatives and to support their mission.”
