CSU Pueblo Athletics Announces Partnership With RealResponse


Colorado State University Pueblo Athletics announced today their partnership with RealResponse. In this partnership, RealResponse aims to provide Pack Athletics with resources to help foster an environment that encourages open, safe and confidential communication with administration as well as a post-season assessment tool to measure the student-athletes’ experience in a given sport.

RealResponse is a partner with more than 125 colleges and universities as well as with the NFLPA, USADA, the NWSL, and USA Gymnastics.

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 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.

“Today’s collegiate student-athletes, coaches and staff are faced with complex challenges in an ever-changing landscape, with more demands and pressure than ever before,” said RealResponse Founder and CEO David Chadwick. “It is critical that they have the ability to share anonymous feedback with Department leaders to ensure a positive environment, and RealResponse is proud to partner with CSU Pueblo in their drive towards enhancing the experience for all.”

Colorado State University Pueblo, an NCAA Division II member institution, with over 675 student-athletes will use RealResponse to provide anonymous reporting and a post-season survey to assess student-athlete satisfaction.

“CSU Pueblo is excited to partner with RealResponse, who has created a state-of-the-art platform designed for today’s generation,” said Dr. Paul Plinske, Colorado State University Pueblo Vice President for Athletics and Strategic Partnerships. “Our goal is to listen more intently to our student-athletes and RealResponse is the best, most revered in the business at providing the technology to assist in this area. As an athletic administration, we are constantly trying to improve and the platform provided by RealResponse will enable us to make impactful decisions that transform the student-athlete experience.”
