Our mission is to understand society through sports. In doing so the NYUSSP has three key audiences (1) academics including especially students and young people (2) influencers, movers and shakers in the world of sports and (3) fans and the interested public.

3) Create opportunities for both rapid and sustained analysis that demonstrates sports’ capability as both a learning tool and a topic for interdisciplinary research.
