  • First and foremost, what drew you to the intercollegiate sports/sports industry?


IAL Student

After completing a two-year internship with the Middle Atlantic Conference (MAC) I knew I wanted to continue my career in collegiate athletics. The IAL program was a perfect fit because it was the only sports management program in the country with a complete focus in higher education. The accelerated summer course schedule allowed me to continue working in the MAC office, now as the Assistant Executive Director, and put theory into practice. While I love living on the East coast, it was great to be in a new environment in Seattle and a Division I campus for the summer…

The IAL: Coaching program has been a wonderfully enriching experience so far. The mix of in person and online learning is a great match for the often intense and unpredictable collegiate coaching calendar. The summer session was an immersive start to the program that mixed UW’s beautiful campus with an intense learning environment. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to learn from different experiences within our cohort, varying academic perspectives, and from sports industry professionals.

IAL has allowed me to have one of the best summers of my life, thus far. I have not only grown as a student, but IAL has pushed me to grow as an individual, a friend, a professional and future leader. Each class has opened my eyes up to new ways thinking, interacting, presenting, and researching. In addition to all of the critical thinking that has taken place, IAL has opened up networking doors that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise. I have had the opportunity to meet professionals from all facets in sports ranging from athletic directors, professors, CEO’s and everyone in between.

Undergrad Student

I looked at sports through a lens of athlete, coach, and mentor. I learned everything is not cut and dry. Our bias, perceptions, and experiences shape our lives and it is up to us to be better, more helpful, loving and sincere to propel youth to new horizons.
