PHILADELPHIA, PA [9/13/2023] – Temple Athletics has renewed its partnership with Advance NIL (ADVANCE), an industry leader in student-athlete life skills development and Name, Image and Likeness consulting, announced Vice President and Director of Athletics Arthur Johnson.


“We are happy to extend our partnership with ADVANCE, a leader in this growing field,” said Johnson. “ADVANCE teaches foundational life skills, such as decision-making, due diligence, financial literacy, contract fundamentals, tax education, career development, networking, and personal branding that will help prepare our student-athletes for lifelong success.”


As part of the partnership, ADVANCE will continue to provide protective education sessions for Temple student-athletes and staff.  ADVANCE has been on Temple’s campus on multiple occasions over the past year, providing student-athletes key development trainings on life skills that will help them maximize their brands.


“Temple Athletics is passionate about educating its student-athletes and we are thrilled to continue our partnership in this effort,” said Courtney Altemus, Managing Partner at ADVANCE.  “In the rapidly changing world of college athletics, it’s more important than ever to equip and empower student-athletes with our Protective Education.”


ADVANCE, a joint venture by longtime partners TeamAltemus and Anomaly Sports Group, was on the Temple’s campus as recently as this month to provide education sessions with the Temple Football team. The sessions provide resources to assist student-athletes with questions that periodically arise surrounding NIL.


ADVANCE strategically benefits its partners by bringing together experts across sports business, education, finance, law, marketing, branding and compliance. ADVANCE 's expertise, network of professional athletes and weekly immersion on college campuses across the country allows its team to collect real-time data and be agile in responding quickly to the rapid changes in collegiate athletics.
