Among the areas that we need your support include our FREE conferences that foster student skill development and career readiness:
Sports Analytics Conference: The Ohio State Sports Analytics Association, in conjunction with the Sports and Society Initiative, is hosting its third Sports Analytics Conference. Attendees will have an opportunity to share their research, participate in a workshop, and learn about sports analytics from industry leaders.
Creative Con 2023: The College Creatives Collective and Sports and Society Initiative will join together to present the second edition of this conference to bring together students and professionals in the college athletic space to explore skills and careers in graphic design, videography, photography and social media. The day-long conference will feature training sessions, student showcase events, career readiness panels, portfolio and resume reviews, and more.
In addition, your donations will support:
- SSI PROGRAMMING, like our recent event on NIL and Student-Athletes
- SSI career readiness sessions to help students gain employment in the sports space.
- SSI research for undergraduate and graduate students to study the impacts in the space where sports and society meet.
