Sports Centre

Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they
understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”

Nelson Mandela

Mission:

To provide advanced cutting-edge sports facilities and sports professionals, improve the physical and emotional lives of the students, and harness the power of sport to inspire positive social and mental change.

Vision:

We endeavour to become the leading voice at the intersection of athletics and academics. We hope to use this voice to unite, challenge, and inspire the next generation of leaders to improve the lives of athletes and to act as stewards of the best practices in the industry as well as society as a whole.

Values:

Creative Collaboration:

We seek connections across disciplines and will continually work to seek out new and creative ways to solve the issues and challenges that students face in the industry.

Responsibility:

We never forget our responsibility to care for our students and improve their physical and emotional well-being.

Open Dialogue:

We are a forum for the free exchange of ideas so that all have the voice to propose solutions to problems facing the industry and society at large.

Empowerment:

We work with students and give them the tools and skills necessary to improve the lives of others.

Passion:

We approach our work with the same passion that athletes have for achieving their goals and fans have for supporting their teams.

Goals:

The Sports Center has four pillars – research, education, service, and community outreach.

What makes the Sports Center special is our multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approach to sports, academics, research, and service. The University professionals from every corner of campus engage their expertise to advance research, educate, and serve the community.

Educate:  Today’s industry goes well beyond employment, encompassing a wide range of careers in fields from engineering to business professionals and law to medicine and public health. Every academic discipline can be applied to sports and every discipline can benefit from its application to sports.  The Sports Center educates and prepares the next generation of professionals. The Center also seeks to educate the public and enhance their understanding and appreciation of sport’s importance in society.

Advance Research: There is a tremendous void in the scientific study of athletes and the impact of sports. The Sports Center conducts extensive scientific research on critical issues such as the health and well-being of the students of GNU.

Improve the Physical and Emotional Lives of the students: More than ever, the serious, long-lasting repercussions of the role of the mental and emotional health of the students is drawing national attention. But the challenges students face go beyond the physiological.  As students at all levels transition from one level to the next, and eventually out to serve in their profession they face unique challenges.  The Sports Center will provide customized support, training, and treatment to improve their physical and emotional well-being.

Engage the Community: Sports have a unique ability to bring us together in such a way that allows us to transcend our differences and find common ground. The Sports Center is committed to finding creative ways to use sports and athletes to inspire positive social change. The Center provides resources, training, and development to assist and empower students to successfully launch community-positive, socially conscious, and social entrepreneurial endeavours.
