Fairfax, Va.– George Mason Athletics has partnered with RealResponse, the leading feedback and anonymous reporting platform for athletic organizations, Interim Director of Athletics Nena Rogers announced today.
The partnership highlights George Mason’s commitment to prioritizing student-athlete health and wellness, safety and experiences by giving student-athletes a platform to communicate with their administration in real time, and if necessary, confidentially. The platform also allows for the ability to centralize the department’s most important documentation and conduct surveys regarding student-athlete experience.
Mason Athletics previously utilized RealResponse during a successful trial run in 2021.
“The student-athlete experience and well-being is and always will be the top priority for George Mason Athletics,” Rogers said. “RealResponse is an empowering method of outreach that we can provide our student-athletes to use their voice to express any concerns or feedback to our athletic leadership. We are excited to support our student-athletes with this easy, valuable, and trusted resource.”
RealResponse is a powerful web-based platform that offers three solutions: a survey tool for student-athletes to share feedback and rate their schools, a benchmark tool to compare metrics to peer and national averages and the organization’s Anonymous Real-Time Reporting tool to empower student-athletes to report concerns anonymously in real time. Using the platform’s documentation hub, key personnel can securely store and track sensitive information.
George Mason student-athletes join more than 50,000 NCAA Division I student-athletes using RealResponse to share feedback with coaches and administrators. The platform allows for feedback on all things, both positive and negative, that impact the student-athlete experience.
David Chadwick, founder of RealResponse added, “Like so many of their peers across the nation, George Mason Athletics recognizes the need and responsibility to ensure its student-athletes have a world-class experience, which includes providing them with the ability to share anonymous concerns with Patriots’ leadership. RealResponse is honored to partner with George Mason, and we look forward to helping the incredible staff and student-athletes pursue excellence in all of their endeavors.”
Originally founded in 2015 and then expanded in 2020, RealResponse is a partner with more than 100 colleges and universities as well as with the NFLPA and USA Gymnastics, giving more than 50,000 athletes the ability to anonymously share feedback and concerns in a safe and secure manner. RealResponse is an online platform that allows for real-time reporting, surveys, and as a document repository. Organizations can also benchmark metrics to peer and national averages to identify areas of competitive advantage and vulnerability. Additional partnerships with international organizations, colleges and professional sports properties are expected in the coming weeks.
