Education

Education is at the core of the Institute. As a department within a thriving University, the Institute serves to help educate the internal student population in the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as through the DC program. The education provided is hands-on applied and practical. It involves working with athletes, coaches, reviewing literature and working on different projectes related to our conferences and workshops.
