About the Center

Sports and athletes occupy an increasingly important role in our society. Along with this increased importance comes a myriad of complex problems requiring creative interdisciplinary solutions.  These solutions can benefit millions of people, and no institution has yet made sport the centerpiece of a comprehensive interdisciplinary program. Despite being more connected than at any point in history we have deep divisions and passionate disagreements. Sports can be a bridge across political, economic, religious, and racial divides. Tulane has taken the initiative to respond to the changing importance and expectations placed on sport in our society and created a unique program at the intersection of athletics and academics that works to solve problems for the benefit of athletes, the sports industry and society.
