Student Research Colloquium

The Department of Sport Management at Brock University recognizes the growing number of undergraduate and graduate students within our discipline who have strong research interests and abilities. We also realize that serving the needs of these students is critical for the successful growth of our discipline.

To that end, the Department staged the first Student Research Colloquium in 2003. From its early beginnings as a short 2-hour forum where 4th year BSM students presented research projects to their peers, the colloquium has grown to a full-day program with a keynote address, concurrent oral and poster research presentations, and active networking sessions during lunch and coffee breaks.

The colloquium offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present research in an educational. While faculty and community members attend the colloquium, only students present.

Our mission statement is to provide an exciting and professional venue for graduate and undergraduate students to present their scholarly work, and to promote the importance of research skills within both academic and professional sport management forums.

The colloquium is transdiciplinary and welcomes students from the broad realm of sport, recreation, leisure, tourism, physical education and health studies. Areas of interest may include but are not limited to marketing, sponsorship, promotion, economics, human resources, strategy, policy, socio-history, and other management issues in commercial, professional, non-profit, or public sectors involving sport, recreation, leisure, physical education, and active living. Both completed and in-progress research is welcome.

In the past, the Student Research Colloquium provided opportunities for students from Slippery Rock University, University of Michigan, University of Western Ontario, McMaster University, the University of Toronto, the University of Waterloo, the University of Windsor, Ryerson University, and Concordia University to present their work in a forum of their peers. To date a total of 388 individuals have participated in the colloquium. This includes 184 student presenters and 204 faculty and community attendees.
 
The Student Research Colloquium also includes a keynote address and this session is a valuable part of the program. Please visit the Keynote Speaker webpage on this site for further details of past addressees.
