The mission of the College Sport Research Institute is to encourage and support interdisciplinary and inter-university collaborative college sport research, serve as a research consortium for college sport researchers from across the United States, and disseminate college sport research results to academics, practitioners, and the general public.
The Institute provides opportunities for independent, organized, and focused cross-disciplinary research regarding college sport in the United States. Specifically, it is committed to serving as a national clearinghouse for college sport inquiry and research, building research capacity – both internally and externally – that increases the ability of students, faculty, and college sport practitioners to perform research into issues of college sport.
