Who We Serve
CSLi and UT Athletics have crafted a curriculum on financial literacy and sound decision-making. “Gameplan for Winning at Life”, a 3-hour course, is offered to all students at the University of Texas and every freshman student-athlete takes the course.
CSLi seeks to empower our high school athletes through a variety of programs to be equipped to contribute to society post athletics, whether that be after high school, after college, or after a professional career.
In May 2016, CSLi hosted 25 coaches from across the state of Texas for a one-day certification program . The CLEAT certification serves as a support system for coaches who want to improve their ability to cultivate leadership and sound character traits with their student-athletes.
Integrity. Inquiry. Innovation.
The Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation (CSLi) cultivates the character development, leadership skills and long-term welfare of athletes and coaches.
Launched on December 15, 2014, the Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation represents the University’s commitment to live up to its mission statement: To Transform Lives for the Benefit of Society.
CSLi leverages the University’s academic and sports capital to cultivate leadership and character reform among student-athletes across the country.
