Stetson University Teams Up with RealResponse to Enhance the Student-Athlete Experience


Through the country’s leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform, Hatters can communicate directly with administrators, sharing feedback and critical concerns in real time.

DELAND, FL — RealResponse, the leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform for athletic organizations, is joining up with Stetson University. The collaboration is another way Stetson is prioritizing student-athlete welfare, and creating a new opportunity for students to obtain support for matters ranging from COVID-19 concerns to mental health issues.

“We want to make sure our student-athletes are being heard,” Jeff Altier, Stetson University Director of Athletics, said. “RealResponse is a natural fit to make sure our athletes feel empowered and safe to share feedback on their experiences and voice concerns to administration. With the information received, we can make a meaningful change to the athletics program and Hatter experience here at Stetson.”

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

“In this unprecedented school year, we’ve had a noticeable uptick in student-athletes anonymously reaching out to their administration for help,” David Chadwick, founder of RealResponse, said. “Now more than ever, student-athletes need a safe space to communicate with their athletic department. Jeff Altier and Alicia Queally are making a point to prioritize Hatters’ health and safety, and we’re happy to back their efforts through the RealResponse platform.”
