The center

VCU Center for Sport Leadership

Virginia Commonwealth University developed the Center for Sport Leadership with the idea of creating an innovative, practical learning environment that would prepare students for a successful career in the sport industry.

This new educational paradigm teaches students the necessary skills, while giving them ownership of operational responsibility to the organization and providing access to upper-level coaches and administrators.

With more than 900 graduates, the Center for Sport Leadership at VCU has placed students in every area of the industry — including professional, intercollegiate, Olympic, nonprofit and grassroots organizations. These successful alumni provide a useful tool in establishing a network base for connecting with future leaders in the industry.
