The Sports Conflict Institute (SCI) supports competitive goals in athletics through assessing, preventing, and resolving destructive conflicts that occur both inside and outside the lines. SCI serves as a resource center and provides a range of services to help manage risk and optimize performance. Conflict is inevitable, but how we respond determines whether success or failure will follow.
SCI supports organizational and individual goals through service and knowledge focusing on sports conflict. Our interdisciplinary approach is based on the assumption that good conflict management is good for sports, good for the business of sports, and good for society. Every day there is a sports conflict that makes national headlines. SCI is dedicated to minimizing these destructive costs, by looking far below the tip of the iceberg, and fostering the positive value sports can provide to both participants and spectators
