As a sports team needs its players to collaborate on the court to be successful, the CSPS relies on the support of the University of Tennessee, U.S. Department of State, corporate partners, and non-profits based in the United States and overseas to accomplish our mission of using sport for sustainable development and peace.

From national partners on the internationally-recognized Global Sports Mentoring Program, and working on campus with Tennessee Athletics and the Center for Leadership and Service on the VOLeaders Academy, to partnering nonprofits like Girls on the Run and the YWCA to teach students how sports can be used to make a difference in Knoxville’s communities, the CSPS is very fortunate for the many successful collaborations since launching in 2012.
