An op-ed—co-authored by Becker College President, Nancy P. Crimmin, Ed.D., and Timothy Loew, executive director of Mass DiGI—that focused on the value of esports to economic recovery and growth in Massachusetts—was published in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. The authors wrote, “As we consider new opportunities that can help fuel economic recovery and growth over the coming years in Central Massachusetts and the Commonwealth, we need to embrace esports—which sits squarely at the confluence of our entrepreneurial spirit, innovative mindset, and nationally and internationally recognized strengths in gaming, entertainment, sports, technology, creativity, and education.”
