Here's what sport industry leaders say sets the CSL apart

We have had an unbelievable relationship with the entire CSL community. The students are very serious about their future and aren't afraid to get dirty to achieve forward movement. The professors and staff really care about their students and also about their professional partners and they simply 'get it'. They get the academic process and the real life relationship process as well.

We love our strong partnership with the Center for Sport Leadership. The graduate assistants gain incomparable real-world experience working in our department and we truly value the important work they do for us. We have several CSL alumni working in the department because each one did such a fantastic job as a graduate assistant.

Working with the Center for Sport Leadership has been fantastic. The Graduate Students that have been involved in our foundation programs have been professional and hard working. The faculty is very professional and takes the time to work with the foundation to help identify potential interns that will be a good fit—for us and for the student. In addition, the CSL has supported our work both at training camp and for special events in the DMV. Their efforts have made it possible for us to achieve our mission!
