Student-athletes at the University of Arkansas will be able to capitalize on their image and likeness through a new program, Flagship.
- Context: During the 2021 legislative session, legislation was passed that will allow Arkansas student-athletes to receive compensation for their publicity or name, image and likeness rights. Student-athletes can now enter into contracts to be compensated for commercial use of publicity rights.
- Flagship is designed to provide student-athletes with the tools to build their personal brands and earning capabilities. The University of Arkansas has created the Office of Athlete Brand Management to oversee this program.
