Supporting College Sport Research
The world of college sport is rapidly evolving. As a result, issues arise with increasing regularity. Our organizational goal is to create awareness of these questions and to foster creative solutions.
The center's vision is to provide opportunities for independent, organized and focused cross-disciplinary research regarding college sport in the United States. Specifically, CSRI is committed to serving as a national clearinghouse for college sports research, building research capacity – both internally and externally – that increases the ability of students, faculty, and college-sport practitioners to perform research into issues in college sport.
