David Falk: Agent of Change Documentary Premiere

On Friday, October 23, Falk College Dean, Diane Lyden Murphy, along with students, faculty, and staff, will lead a special dedication ceremony to commemorate the opening of the new home of the David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics. The event will take place at 2:00 p.m. directly in front of the courtyard linking MacNaughton and White Halls, which formerly housed the College of Law.

The dedication ceremony will be followed by a reception and student-led tours. At 3:15 p.m. the premiere of the documentary, David Falk: Agent of Change will be shown in Grant Auditorium. In a career spanning five decades, David Falk set the market for how all future sports stars would be compensated. His family’s generosity has endowed Falk College at Syracuse University and the Falk Academy for Management and Entrepreneurship at George Washington University Law School. This biographical documentary is narrated by Newhouse alumna, Mike Tirico ‘88, ESPN play-by-play commentator. Original music was composed for the film by William DiCosimo, assistant professor in the Setnor School of Music. Written, produced and directed by Falk sport management professor of practice, Dennis Deninger.
