Sports—A Microcosm of Societal Wellness

(and Other Thoughts on Careers, Student Athletes, and Coaching)

On July 12, Nora Lynn Finch, ACC Senior Associate Commissioner, Women’s Basketball and former RPWF member, will share her unique perspectives gained through her years of experience in sports.  She will share her thoughts on careers, how sports are a microcosm of society, challenges faced by athletes today, and her unique approach to coaching the coach. 

It’s difficult to encapsulate Nora Lynn Finch’s career in one phrase. She has been a women’s basketball coach (first at Wake Forest), an athletic director (at Peace College) and a mainstay in N.C. State’s athletic administration before transitioning to the ACC in 2008   Through it all, Nora Lynn has been a builder of teams, from forging a program at Peace, through shaping a department in a 31-year career at N.C. State, to integrating the ACC’s newest school members into the conference’s culture and traditions.  Nora Lynn has many professional honors including being selected to the 125 Transformational Women of N.C. State in 2013, and 12th Most Influential Person in Women’s Athletics in the 20th Century (1999) to name a few.   


Join us for a lively, engaging and thought-provoking conversation with Nora Lynn!
