The Sport and Urban Policy Initiative (SUPI) is a forum for scientific study of the ways in which sport (including youth, amateur, recreational, collegiate, professional, and international) interacts with, contributes to, and interferes with urban spaces.

Launched in 2016—the twentieth anniversary of the 1996 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Atlanta—the Sport and Urban Policy Initiative seeks to (1) engage in and promote interdisciplinary research that examines the relationship between sport and urban communities; (2) enhance public understanding of these relationships; and (3) inform policymaking.  Learn more about SUPI.
