The remarkable result, from the measurements of spin asymmetry in polarized

deep inelastic scattering by the EMC collaboration, that the sum of the

spins of the quarks contributes less than half of the total spin of the

proton lay down the challenge to explain this “proton spin crisis” from

QCD. I will show that calculations of the required matrix elements using

Lattice QCD are now in a position to provide first principle results with

all systematics under control and the steady reduction in the error budget.

The most well determined of the contributions is of the quark's intrinsic

spin. Existing lattice results will be reviewed and compared with current

phenomenological/experimental estimates.
