Band of abstract colors representing diversity

David Hollander


David Hollander, assistant dean of Real World and clinical associate professor at the Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport, was featured in a vignette highlighting Brooklyn Net's player Jason Collins "98". In 2014, Jason Collins was the #1 selling NBA jersey in his first month under contract with Brooklyn Nets, after becoming first (and still only) openly gay male player in one of the four major North American sports leagues. The short video is running on CBS, CBS Sports Network, CBS social platforms, and Viacom +, all this month in honor of Pride Month. View video clip.
