The Impact of COVID-19 on Sport and Society

3D rendering of the coronavirus.

The Institute for the Study of Sport, Society and Social Change is sensitive to the current health pandemic that is challenging our daily lives socially, emotionally, financially, and mentally. Sport plays a prominent role for many people in the United States and across the globe, whether as a participant, a coach, an administrator, a family member, and/or as a fan! It is our goal to highlight a few of these news stories – some informational, some personal, and some to remind, inspire, and uplift us.

Be well,
