With permission from the Hutchins family, The Drake Group created the Robert Maynard Hutchins (RMH) Award in 2004 to honor individuals who have defended academic integrity in the face of commercialized college sport. The 2014 RMH Award is being presented to Dr. Jay Smith, professor of history at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and founder of UNC’s Athletic Reform Group, which sought to uncover the truth about academic fraud at UNC. The Drake Group is recognizing Dr. Smith for refusing to look the other way when allegations arose that many UNC athletes had been permitted for nearly two decades to enroll in courses and earn grades without attending classes or doing any work.
