The Sports and Society Initiative at Ohio State is devoted to the development of a better understanding of the role of amateur and professional sports in the economy and society at large. With the increasing importance of sports in every aspect of American life, the sports-related issues facing our society have become complex and poorly understood by many in the general public. The Sports and Society Initiative’s efforts are interdisciplinary, bringing in students and faculty from across Ohio State, to engage in research and discussion on the current role of sports related topics.
