For over eight years, an expanding group of sports-interested faculty and administrators across the University have met and coordinated activities in an effort to combine human and tangible resources toward a goal of creating a multi-disciplinary center for research, outreach and teaching that would critically study issues related to sports. The group’s mission has been to incubate and facilitate discussion between academics, industry executives, and policymakers about research, regulation, and reforms with regard to professional, intercollegiate, youth, and club-level amateur sports.
John Urschel, a former Penn State football captain and NFL player who is now a doctoral candidate in applied mathematics at MIT, will kick off the 2018 Penn State Sports Analytics Conference with a keynote address April 12 at the State Theatre in downtown State College.
