College Sports: Dubuque First D3 School to Offer NIL

Dubuque — University of Dubuque president Jeffrey Bullock says a Name-Image-Likeness program created by the athletic department is designed to provide athletes compliance and opportunity.

The Spartans have paired with a company called INFCLR (influencer) to become the first Division III school in the country to offer an N-I-L exchange.

Bullock says it will provide opportunities for athletes that are normally available for more high profile division one athletes.

The NIL era has become a Wild West of sorts, without much regulation from the NCAA.

Some college players have received seven figure NIL deals to leave their school and transfer to a different program.
