The Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management has developed three organizations that present undergraduate students with a variety of leadership opportunities. Whether it be developing a networking or guest speaker event with alumni, coordinating professional development, or volunteering within the surrounding community, students involved in these organizations gain valuable experiences that assist them in becoming responsible leaders in sport management. Members of these organizations are Sport Management majors, and non-majors with an interest in Sport Management. Each student organization has a faculty adviser and receives full support from the Sport Management Department. Current leadership and contact information for each organization can be found by clicking on the title of each organization below.
