Northern Arizona University has joined the You Can Play Project by contributing a video focusing on respecting all athletes regardless of sexual orientation. Their video includes student athletes from the football, golf, tennis, softball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball programs. NAU believes that “the most important thing is one’s cultural roots and true self identity. This creates diversity within our program, and creates a true spirited athlete.” At NAU, if you can play, you can play.
Established in 1899, NAU is located in Flagstaff, Arizona. Their mascot is the Lumberjack, and their school motto is “The difference that matters.” Their student body consists of 27,000 students, and they are a member of the big sky conference.
