College Sport Research Institute (CSRI)

Welcome to the College Sport Research Institute. 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. Our annual conference provides researchers from across the US a forum for sharing their innovative work. This year’s event is set for April 20-22, 2015 at the Downtown Columbia Marriott. We hope to see you there.

In addition to our annual conference, we sponsor the Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics (JIIA). JIIA is a peer-reviewed, open-access resource that promotes discussion and examination of vital issues facing college athletics moving forward. Academics from around the country submit critical analyses of ethical, social, political and economic college-sport issues and potential solutions. For more information visit
