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.
