Alongside our sports competitions, FISU also stages educational events and programmes. As the leading driver of the university sports movement, providing the opportunity for leadership, education and growth are just as important on FISU’s agenda. The FISU Education team encourages the study and enhancement of university sport through educational events, but also with studies and publications, lectures and other activities.
The events and programmes are addressed to special target groups: students, student-athletes, university sports officials and managers, representatives of international sport and non-sport federations, organisers of major FISU events, renowned academic speakers, FISU Family members and more. The FISU core values of excellence, teamwork, innovation, the joy of sports and integrity in particular play an important role in choosing relevant topics for the educational activities. Topics such as equal opportunities, gender equality, leadership, dual career, ethics, Anti-Doping and volunteers are also essential as part of the FISU educational events and programmes.
